Casseroles seem so old fashioned, but they keep on working because they are so easy. To be able to toss a few ingredients in a Pyrex dish and come up with dinner an hour later is at once simple and amazing. This Greek version is best with fresh herbs, but dried are just fine, making it an easy weeknight meal.
