Tips & Variations

This is a delicious sauce! Quick and easy to put together. I used dried basil as that is what I had on hand. Served this over organic corn rotini. DH commented a couple of times during dinner that he was thoroughly enjoying this sauce. Will definitely be making this again. Thank you for sharing Kim!
