I got “Oh.! Oh.! Wow.!” When my partner tasted this… the tomatoes were sweet and tart and the feta was perfectly salty and creamy. Making this again next weekend when we have guests over. Loved it.
Amazing! I'm so happy you enjoyed it!
Just made this! I think the garlic should be added way earlier, when the tomatoes are 50% to 75% softened. Adding the garlic so close to the end didn't give it enough time to cook and mellow out, so it's overwhelming the other flavors in the dish. Serving with lots of parmesan, extra seasoning, and a splash of cream to dilute the flavor helps, but next time I'll just add the garlic earlier.
I made this for my family and they loved it! Thank you for the recipe!
