    Very Good
    I enjoyed this recipe, but I was the only one in my family who did. I thought there could have been a little more of the dressing. It soaked in overnight and was a little dry but the flavor was still there. - 5/11/13

    This is good cold too as a cold salad, I tried heating it up and the tomatoes were SUPER HOT when I microwaved it! Super Yummy! I might add some black/Kalmata olives next time for a Greek flare :) - 1/25/09
