Many Greek families I know make a version of this recipe, but I really worked to streamline it and make it as simple and packed with flavor as possible. This is also a great recipe if you’re watching your waisteline. It can be eaten as is or served over rice, so you determine whether you want to add the carbs. This is one of my mom’s favorite recipes as well as mine…and my kids love the sauce over rice. It’s also perfect to take to a dinner party as a side. Trust me, if you do, your friends will want the recipe Enjoy!
