The fetta was the perfect topping. Excellent dinner.
Absolutely divine, and so easy! I used white wine instead of ouzo, but otherwise made it just as suggested, and...WOW! Crusty bread...a must with this, as the juices are sooooo...juicy!
With last reviewer ABSOLUTELY agree! This is TRULY an OUTSTANDING recipe! Made in casserole pan as well, When will I make this again? Time WILL tell! Used half feta, half grated parmesan cheese! 3 teaspoons HEAPS as chili does please! The Ouzo is a MUST as the taste is there, This is one of those recipes that shows you care! Thanks!
