    • I make pommodoro sauce and throw in with Angel hair pasta..... my favorite thing ever!

    • I used it when I make spaghetti sauce, pasta sauce of any sort.  Use if fresh for pesto.  Oh the possibilities are endless.

    • I throw it in just about anything; scrambled eggs, salad dressing, pasta, soups, stir fry - I love the taste of basil.

      You can chop some garlic and fresh ginger, add lime juice, soy sauce and a little sesame oil for an asian inspired salad dressing. I use Thai basil for that usually but any basil would do.

    • I wouldn’t dry it...i’d use it in a caprese salad!  I LOVE biting into fresh basil drenched in balsamic dressing that’s sharing my fork with a hunk of fresh mozzarella cheese!!!  As a matter of fact, that’s what i had for dinner tonight!

    • Yes pesto sauce is great and made with fresh basil.  It is easy to make and can be eaten on pasta alone or what I do with it is mix it in with a jar of prego sauce.  My dgt loves it this way
