    My sister used to make this years ago and I remembered it well. I made it this weekend for a party and my memory served correct. It is rich, looks lovely and was a huge crowd pleaser. Everyone kept asking where I bought it. This recipe is the same as my sisters except hers calls for 1 cup of parmesan and only 1/2 cup of parsley.
