      I am SOOOO surprised that this has only been made ONCE before in 8 years! This is JUST the kind of food I love............simple ingredients that are allowed to shine individually, we BOTH loved this Jan. I made a FEW small changes, to allow for less fat, even though it is good fat, I used spray olive oil in between the filo layers and also used 15% reduced fat liquid creme fraiche. Other than that, this was made as posted and was just brilliant. We ate this as part of a meze style lunch with dips and salads, and still have half left for tomorrow. Made for Make my Recipe in the Oz/Kiwi forum and the Under Cover event in the Photo's Forum, and a keeper for me thanks Jan! Karen :-)
