Well, this was a first! In my many, many years of cooking for the Chief Taster I have never received this applause.  And believe me, I have cooked up some amazing dishes (he is so spoilt!).   I baked this for him on a Sunday, and he had this on a Monday (he heated it up).   I received a text excitedly describing the joys of this dish and how he could eat it again.   It must be good……… This is an easy dish to make and I suspect that it is the Feta cheese that brings the dish together.   I also suspect that this is now a regular on our weekly menu at the Chief Taster’s request…..who cares, as it is soooooo easy to make!  Not bad considering I am a veggie..!

This is very easy to make, and by the review of the Chief Taster, yummy to eat!  Oh the joys of easy baking! So much better than any ready meal and you know where the ingredients have come from!   How people eat these ready heat up/microwave meals is a mystery to me….so much better to cook your own!   Cooking from natural ingredients does not have to take ages, can be fun and more importantly…delicious!
