Recipe Notes

2 WW Freestyle points for a heaping cup.
If you are Paleo, Whole30 or on any other eating program that restricts dairy, simply omit  the feta.   The flavor is still fabulous!
Fresh or frozen (unthawed or thawed) works, just increase the cooking time a bit if working with frozen.
Add more veggies!  Carrots, broccoli, leeks are a few that come to mind.
