What a yummy looking dip! Probably better than anything I've had at California Pizza Kitchen.

What a great idea Paula! I'll bet as little appetizers they'd be great too (in those mini muffin tins with phyllo cups). Hungry!

What a fabulous side dish. I'm wondering if you ever made this into a pie or served it wrapped in a phyllo crust?
