Wow!! this recipe was AWESOME!! I made it for my mom and grandmother and they said they felt like they were eating in a fancy restaurant. I used a little dry parsley instead of fresh since it all I had and since I decided to make it at the last minute, I toasted my bread crumbs to dry them out. It turned out so good!! Thanks for this!!
