I usually make a small batch of any recipe first so I don't waste any ingredients. For this recipe, however, that was a waste of time because now I have to make MORE! Very tasty! The only change I made was to use fresh parsley rather than dried. I'm sure this will only get better with age! Thank you very much! - 04 May 2013
