      Some recipes when they state 6-8 servings mean official serving sizes which in realiy equates to 3-4 servings for our family. Not this recipe! I had to use 2 pots and split the ingredients up and had plenty left over for lunch the next day despite everyone eating heaps. My 2 year old loved this which is great because she has been going through a fussy stage, and everyone else had seconds and thirds. I used vegetarian chicken flavoured vvegetable stock and substituted the parsley with lemon balm.
