These pitas are wonderful served with a side dish of pasta, tossed with a little lemon-infused olive oil and garlic.
  • ½ tsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, sliced in wedges
  • 2 medium red bell peppers, seeded and sliced ¾-inch thick
  • 2 medium yellow or green bell peppers, seeded and sliced ¾-inch thick
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 large firm ripe tomato, cut into wedges
  • ⅓ cup Greek or kalamata olives, pitted and coarsely chopped
  • ½ tsp. dried oregano
  • 4 large pitas
  • 2 oz. feta cheese, optional

1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Heat pitas in oven until warmed through.

2. In large nonstick wok or skillet, heat oil over high heat.

4. Place warm pitas on individual plates. Divide vegetable mixture into equal portions, and place each inside pita pocket to make a sandwich. Sprinkle each sandwich with crumbled feta cheese, and serve hot. Alternatively, place peppers in baking dish, and sprinkle with feta. Microwave until cheese melts, about 2 minutes.
