This is a traditional Greek recipe. I grew up eating this as a child, and I think it's fantastic. Can be served both hot or cold.

Excellent recipe! For something uniquely 'Greek' I would only add 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon at the very end.

Over all, good side dish. I cut down on the oil and added some V8 juice as I was cooking so it stayed moist and didn't stick to the pot (although still stuck a little). My only complaint is that the flavours of the tomato were quite mild, but I accidentally added Cayenne pepper instead of regular, so that's my fault =)

Wonderful, just as I remembered. I didn't measure anything and with Step 5 threw a handful of cherry tomatoes in the pan. Thanks... Babbo
