  4. I’m going t use feta instead if goat cheese. Think that will be ok? When I serve this do you suggest assembling it a little bit before they arrive or can they self serve? This looks so delicious!

  5. I love this recipe! I have made it several times. I find fresh garlic in this recipe pretty strong, so I cut it down to one clove. People LOVE it!!!
