    It was so easy and very good, I think next time I will try adding chicken to it. I hope you'll like it.

    From Real Simple magazine

    Ingredients

    1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 teaspoon kosher salt
    4 ounces crumbled Feta cheese
    2/3 cup plain yogurt
    Juice of half a lemon
    2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
    1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    1 10-ounce bag cleaned spinach
    2 pitas

    Directions

    1. Heat oven to 400º F. Toss the tomatoes with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Arrange the tomatoes, cut-side up, on a baking sheet. Bake until they are just softened, about 10 minutes.
    2. Meanwhile, whisk together the Feta, yogurt, lemon juice, and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt; set aside.
    3. Place a medium skillet over medium heat. Add 1/2 tablespoon of the olive oil to the skillet. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes.
    4. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the garlic is softened and just turning golden. Add the spinach and the remaining salt.
    5. Cook, tossing occasionally, until the spinach is just wilted, about 4 minutes.
    6. Brush both sides of the pitas with the remaining olive oil. Place in the oven and heat until lightly toasted, about 2 minutes per side. (You can also do this on a medium-hot grill.) Place the pitas on plates. Top with the spinach and tomatoes. Drizzle the yogurt-Feta sauce on top and serve.

    Serves 2.

                      Sounds yummy, just one question about sodium is that amount right? I can't have too much sodium...
