This is a terrific warm-weather dish, loaded with fresh flavors. I make mine meatless, but some sliced grilled chicken on top would be awesome, too. —Crystal Schlueter, Northglenn, Colorado

"Very tasty dish. Light but flavorful. I put some extra feta in it. Served it with some grilled chicken apple sausage on the side."

"Made this tonight for dinner. It is so flavorful. I fixed grilled chicken strips to go with it as hubby likes meat with his meal. Will definitely make again."

"This is a really delicious recipe & very quick & easy for an after work dinner. We loved it. Omitted the feta as my Mom doesn't care for it. Used dried herbs ( 1/2 of the fresh herbs called for). Still great!"

"This is one of my favorites. The kids like it too. It's the only way I can get them to eat asparagus! I leave out the feta and sub thyme for chives."

"My husband and I loved this dish. I cut the recipe in half for the two of us, omitted the feta and Parmesan, and prepared it with Italian sausage tortellini. I will be making it again tonight with fresh herbs from our garden!"
