    I liked this recipe, my husband did not, but he's from Italy and objected to the feta cheese. I found this recipe to be quick, easy and flavorful. I will make it again when my husband is not home. I used a 8 oz. can of tomato sauce because I did not want to waste a half can of sauce and a 4 oz. packet of feta cheese.
