  1. Yesterday I made this recipe for my husband and myself adjusting ingredients only for 2 servings. We loved it! But next time, I’ll definitely make the full recipe and freeze half for a future meal!

    1. I'm happy that you and your husband enjoyed my recipe. It's always better to eat more of this healthy food.

    2. I did it today - first time I cooked it on my own. That's one of my favorite greek dishes. Thank you for the recipe, it was really tasty! A piece of Feta cheese to accompany the fasolakia - perfect!
