I made this last night and it was delicious! It went very well with the broiled tilapia parmesan from allrecipes.com. The only changes I made were to add a couple of dashes of cayenne pepper and also to put in a bit more garlic and red pepper flakes than the recipe calls for. Definitely a quick easy healthy side dish. Will make again for sure! Read More

The only recipe change I made was to use fresh tomatoes instead of canned. I let the simmered mixture cool before adding the feta and cilantro. This was a light but really filling lunch (had it with a slice of crusty bread). Thanks ScooterMom! Read More

Given that it's that time of year, I was able to use my garden fresh tomatoes rather than the canned (not that there's anything sub-par about canned tomatoes). And in keeping with the 'Tuscan' in the recipes's name, I chose to use fresh Italian parsley instead of cilantro and an imported Ricotta Salata for the feta. Just a few ingredients, but of good quality. Simple preparation, ready to serve in minutes and delicious. My kind of dish. Read More

I finally got around to making this; have had the recipe stored away for a long time. I'm glad I fixed it because it is really really good. I'm not real sure how I want to eat this; as a side over pasta or main dish. I noticed that one reviewer had eaten it cold as a salad but I would think the beans would make it too starchy. Anyway it's delicious! Read More

Very good light side dish for summer time. It reminds me a lot of the restaurant dish at Houlihann's. I made it without the feta and used cayenne pepper instead of red peppper flakes and I enjoyed it very much. Love the spice with the freshness of the cilantro! Read More

I ate this two ways -- once as a warm dish like the recipe said and once as a cold salad for lunch. Both ways were great. I'm not a fan of cilantro so I substituted curly leaf parsley. Read More

Very tasty quick and so easy to put together. I love Feta but used Parmesean instead for my taste. Really liked it with a little extra garlic and I used fresh tomatoes. Read More
