      This was super easy & so delicious! I love Greek food but can't get it where we live, so I was so happy to find this recipe! I made it with brown rice, some garlic herb flat bread and tzatziki dip. Made a wonderful meal with very little effort! Definitely a keeper!

      This was amazing! The aroma coming from the oven was heavenly and just from that we knew we were in for a treat. I did make a few additions and though they probably weren't authentic, they fit perfectly and added an extra dimension to the stew. Towards the end of cooking I added a drained and rinsed can of cannelini beans and some fresh spinach for some extra nutrition. We served this over brown rice and it made for a wonderfully scrumptious and South Beach diet friendly meal. Thank you so much for a recipe that is one of my favorites off Zaar so far!
