    This was a pretty good recipe. I didn't like the dill too much... the dill with the combination of the zucchini made it seem like I was eating pickles! Although it was bearable, next time I will omit the dill. I also cooked it a bit longer than stated, and I added some mushrooms and just used 7 whole eggs instead. Don't be afraid of whole eggs, guys - they are healthy and good for you!

    My kids don't like feta. What can I use instead?

    I found with fresh dill that it wasn't overpowering and more hardly noticable... overall my daughter and I loved it. I did have to cook it for a bit longer then stated though.

    This is so yummy and a great way to use tomatoes, zucchini, squash, and herbs from the garden all at once! I didn't have any marjoram, but used basil and chives and it was delicious! I loved that it used egg whites to cut down on cholesterol and fat.
