That's not how it was supposed to be . . .

As most of you know, my cozy mysteries include recipes.  Angelica was cooking and I needed something for her to make.  I thought it might be nice to include a vegetarian dish for my readers, so out came one of my favorite vegetarian cookbooks.

Broccoli-Feta-Pie I selected a recipe (helpful when these books have gorgeous photography) and read it over to decide how to make it mine.  It featured filo dough, broccoli, and feta cheese.  Hmm.  I'm not a big fan of broccoli mixed with cheese, and I'm REALLY not fond of feta cheese.  Well, I needed to make the recipe my own anyway right?

So, out went the feta.  But wait, I thought why keep the broccoli when I prefer onions and peppers.  And if it needs cheese to bind it, why not use mozzerella?  And since onions, peppers and mozzerella sound like a pizza, why not add sausage to the mix?

Pizza2 So much for my good intenions on a nice vegetarian recipe.

Hitting the grocery store later today to buy the ingredients as I intend to test the recipe to make sure it works for the book. 

I'll let you know how it works out.
