I love pasta. If I could only cook one thing for the rest of my life, it would be pasta. It makes me weak with giddiness just thinking about it. But in the heat of the summer, a pasta habit can be a little difficult to maintain. That’s where this recipe comes in handy. I’ve made it a few times now, making a couple tiny tweaks each time, and it always tastes so fresh and light. The sauce is delightfully creamy, but the zing of the lemon and basil keeps it from being too heavy for a summer evening. Absolutely beautiful.
This recipe is also useful because it uses so much fresh basil, which we happen to have in abundance right now. Back in May, I mentioned that we had gotten some herb plants for my mom on Mother’s Day. We were a little worried that they wouldn’t survive long, but we shouldn’t have fretted… they have TAKEN OVER. So if you have a go-to recipe that requires a large amount of fresh herbs, please let me know. 🙂
