I've read a lot of reviews in which the lack of flavor or nutrition is a concern. I thought the dish was decent, but nothing that stood out. But here are some ideas that might give people what they're looking for. I made it a second time with these adjustments, and it was very good. I added pitted and chopped Kalamata olives which gave a nice savory bite and boosted flavor. I took a handful of grape tomatoes, cut each in half, sprinkled w/Na+ & olive oil then roasted. This brought out the natural sugars & gave the dish more dimension. I also added a small pkg of baby spinach and wilted it within the dish while everything was still hot. This adds tons of nutrition, and adds color and flavor as well. I also used herbed feta which of course boosts the flavor. I'm also thinking that using a can of fire roasted diced tomatoes would lend even more flavor and depth. Dry herbs are generally more flavorful than fresh, so that's something to keep in mind. Dried basil would be more flavorful than fresh. I would also leave out the fresh onion, it is too pungent to taste good and I personally don't think it's necessary and adds nothing but a strong onion flavor & an odd crash of textures that don't go well together. Something to think about...... :)
