    1. Glad to help you menu plan. =) You may want to consider using Italian parsley. I don't have any fresh herbs yet and the grocery store only had curly leaf parsley so that's what I used. Though it was tasty, the texture was a little rough with the curly parsley. You can use fresh mint and basil too if you have it. Let me know how you and your guests like it and if you go curly or Italian.
