    Made this last night for dinner and it was quite good. My goddaughter loved it, but it's a bit too heavy for me. I normally don't use cream cheese in anything because of the high fat content, but I know kids love this kind of stuff! The only substitution that I made was using cilantro instead of parsley. Thanks for the recipe!
