We really like this one. And heaven forbid, it's healthy! I did add a little more lemon -both rind and juice, and may add more next time, as I love the lemon flavor. And maybe more parsley. I did add some Feta cheese, which was a good option. I will most certainly make this again, but may double it. yummm!
