    Anna,

    I needed to let you know that your recipe was amazing. My husband is currently at goal for Weight Watchers (he lost 50 pounds this last year) and he needs a large amount of quality healthy food. I actually used non fat greek yogurt and non fat feta for the recipe and my husband said not to change anything.

    Thank you for cleaning up the recipe and reducing the fat, you don’t need much to make a delicious meal.
