  1. I have this same recipe and love making this. I only use 1tsp of basil and 1tsp of thyme rather then the dried parsley.This is good served with a side of pasta. Thanks for posting.


I originally joined the site as "aussiekarin", but decided instead to go with my nickname - Kayne. Sorry if this causes any confusion! I moved to the US from Australia in 1970, and apart from three years in Germanyhave been here the whole time. However, still consider myself an Australian, although I was actually born in Holland. Since I come from such a diversified background, my cooking is rather strange at times. Many times it is a combiniation of Dutch, Aussie / English, German and American. I'm not really much of a cook, but enjoy it, nevertheless. I just wish I knew more and could do more - without a recipe! I'm retired now, so one of my goals is to really learn to cook. I intend to enjoy my retirement, doing what I never had time to do before. Since joining Recipezaar in November, 2006, I find that my cooking has changed somewhat. I'm more adventurous, willing to try new and more varied tastes, and combinations, and just about all of what I prepare is edible. Lately, due to a major life change, I've been letting my cooking go, but hopefully that will change one day. Oddly, I miss it, more than I ever thought I would!!!!!
