"When I made this recipe I made two mistakes. In my hurry, I put in 2 tablespoons of DRIED parsley, not fresh parsley. I should have put in 2 TEASPOONS of dried parsley because that is the equivalent of 2 tablespoons of fresh parsley. I also overbaked it a little. These two mistakes probably gave me a wrong opinion if it were done right- but my family and I found it dry and hard and the parsley of course was very overpowering."

"Very tasty, although I was dissappointed to see that instructions on cutting/serving the dish weren't included. I wasn't sure if I should try to flip the dish onto a plate, or just serve from the pan.

I made a fw alterations. I severely limited the onion, since my husband isn't an onion pan. Plus I substituted the garlic cloves with onion powder. I also didn't have Colby cheese, so I used a mexican blend instead. It tasted fine with the mexican cheese, but probably not as salty/savory as originally intended."
