I pinched this recipe from a Greek reality show and it's really yummy! My family and friends agree and very easy to make. If you're fasting for Easter (nistisimo), I guess make pastry without the egg and use Bitam (vegetable fat).

  2. Using olive oil, fry onions, leeks and fennel until slightly softened. Add scallions, tomatoes. Simmer for a couple of minutes,add peeled chopped peppers. Simmer again. Remove from heat. Mix in crumbled feta cheese.
