Imagine you’re in Hawaii.
Well, I’m afraid this casserole didn’t fool me into thinking I was on the verdant islands of Hawaii but it was quite pleasant especially with a lovely glass of white wine that our daughter, Ella, had given us produced near Orange NSW. It looked very ordinary - tossing chopped parsley on top was a good idea Ruby! Anne.
