this was very tasty and had an authentic mediterranean taste to it. I thought the sauce needed a little pep though and added tabasco and some cayenne pepper. I used canned tomatoes which worked fine. we'll definitely make this again:) Read More

I did not care for this. Without taste - needed a little more seasoning. It honestly just didn't work - it was a very water-downed version of a classic Greek dish. Not recommended if you are a fan of Greek food. Possibly good for young kids??? Read More

I made this for dinner tonight as a side dish with steak and we found it very tasty. It might have been even better if I had remembered to add the oregano but truthfully I didn't miss it. I only realized that it was missing when I came to do this review. I used Portabello mushrooms and since I was out of olive oil I used a bit of saflower oil and a bit of butter for the sauce. Thank you Mary for a lovely dish. Next time I will make sure I have all the right ingredients on hand and that I add them all. LOL.. Read More

This recipe was awesome. My whole family loved it. I added in the black olives with the garlic and mushrooms to saute. I also didn't blanch the tomatoes and they turned out great. I just chopped them up and added them to the saute pan for the last few minutes. Then sprinked with feta when done. Yummy!! Will make again. Read More

Overall it was good although I do not know of one Greek person who would use canned black olives. Only Kalamata olives would do as well as a tablespoon (at least) of Greek oregano. Read More

I looked foward to making this as it contains several of my favorite ingredients. However I was extremely disappointed with the total lack of flavor in this dish. There is definitely something lacking in this recipie and I will not make this again. Read More

Since my husband doesn't like mushrooms I followed the advice of others and used artichokes and zucchini. We thought it was just ok -- not bad but maybe if we would have used half of the amount of pasta called for it might have been a bit better. Read More

Excellent! Even with exceptions - canned tomatoes no mushrooms and used fettucini. Very fast prep. Very good! Read More
