      Very good and easy to construct. I made this with vegetarian soy crumbles instead of the ground beef, and layered phyllo at the bottom of the pan to just to make for an easier to serve meal and it turned out excellent. Very crowd pleasing!

      This recipe surprised me. It has a wonderful flavor and the phyllo crust gave it a real Mediterranean appeal.
