Za’atar a terrific spice blend used in a lot of Middle Eastern cooking. It can range from spicy to mild and in this recipe I used mild.
It was nice to know that during a busy week night, a sumptuous dinner could be pulled together in 30 minutes. Paired with a lovely salad, it’s everything you could need to put a decadent dinner on the table.
