"This was good, not amazing, but good. I'm not sure if I would remake this specific recipe or go out of my way to recommend it because I've made many variations of this just on my own by throwing the veggies I have on hand together in a skillet with olive oil and seasonings..It just isn't very original, but tasted ok."

"Wonderful side dish or a lite main dish. Angel hair pasta was great with it as well."

"This is absolutely delicious! It can be tailored to the veggies that the family likes (we've used brussel sprouts and carrots too.) Can also add grilled chicken and make it a meal instead of side dish. Definitely a keeper!"

"I've made this delicious dish many times. It gets rave reviews every time. I often substitute the veggies I have available and it's just as good, in my opinion."

"My hubby is not a fan of Feta, so I used a little parm instead. Came out great. All around excellent side dish."
