Tip
Use your favorite shredded Italian cheese in this casserole. Asiago, fontina, provolone and Parmesan all melt nicely; try one, a combination, or purchase a shredded cheese blend.
To easily chop parsley, trim the stems and place the leaves in a 1-cup glass measuring cup. Use kitchen scissors to snip the leaves, rotating the cup until all the parsley is chopped.
