2 cups lightly packed fresh parsley, stems removed

In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, butter and milk until smooth. Set aside. In a blender or food processor, combine spinach, parsley, walnuts, vegatable oil, lemon juice, garlic, basil, and oregano. Process until smooth. Add Parmesan cheese and blend thoroughly. Line a 8x4x2-inch loaf pan with plastic wrap. Spread one-third of the cream cheese mixture evenly in the bottom of the pan. Top with half of the spinach mixture, spreading evenly. Repeat the layers, ending with the cream cheese mixture. Cover and refrigerate 3 to 4 hours or overnight. Unmold and carefully remove the plastic wrap.
