Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Fresh parsley and basil go very well together and mixed with the pasta makes for flavors that are fresh and alive. We too used our our abundance of basil from the garden and enjoyed this dish very much. Thank you, Tisme, for sharing. Made it for Billboard Tag and What’s on the Menu
