Lemon-Basil Pasta

lemon basil pasta

We planted a little herb garden this summer, and I have basil coming out the wazzoo. I come up with this super good lemon basil pasta that used a lot of the basil. What are some recipes that you make that have basil in them?? Please share your favorite ways to cook with basil. I would love to hear. You can never go wrong with making pasta for dinner. I love it! You really don’t need anything but pasta when you have it for dinner. It fills you up quickly. My kids love pasta, so we are all satisfied by the end of dinner when its pasta. Another great thing about this recipe is it only takes two pots to cook it. Less dishes is always better. Hope you enjoy this recipe!!!
