I really enjoyed this recipe; it was inexpensive, all the ingredients you can easily find at any grocery store, easy to make and tasty to boot! I did alter one thing-sour cream for the yogurt. Wonderful!!

This was realy outstanding. With fresh vegies and substituting meat loaf it turned our wonderful. My husband even "built" his own pita pocket, improving it the second try. Thanks for the recipe
