  17. This was EXCELLENT. I made it for Valentines Day as an appetizer. My girlfriend is Greek, and I’m Italian – so Feta and Ricotta… how can you go wrong. :) I divided the recipe in half and it was probably enough for 4 people to have as a light appetizer. It was a TAD heavy on the raw garlic, it tasted really good – but left me needing to chew some gum. LOL. I wouldn’t modify the recipe at all unless it was important to avoid garlic breath. If so – I’d cut the garlic down a little, or maybe even saute it for 30 seconds or so just to cut the raw garlic taste.

    I served with whole wheat pitas, I cut into 6ths with a pizza cutter drizzled in olive oil and baked at 375 for about 5 minutes to serve it up.

    Thanks so much for sharing – I will make this many times again.
