Mediterranean Torta

This was soooo good. I was skeptical at first when I thought about the combination of ingredients, but it definitely worked well. This is one of those quick and easy meals that you can throw together after work. The textures are awesome here. I loved the crunch from the french onions but the mediterranean taste really came from the roasted pepper and olives. This one torta made 4 servings believe it or not. Because it is layered, one piece was pretty thick. I was nice and full thereafter. 

Did you know that feta is a brined curd white cheese made in Greece from sheep’s milk, or from a mixture of sheep and goat’s milk? Yeah, I didn’t know either.  I love tossing feta in my salads. Feta is said to be the healthiest cheese! Check out the 7 Benefits of Feta Cheese Nutrition — the Healthiest Cheese & Even Anti-Cancer by Dr. Axe.
