Impossible Farms here in Victoria have these personal sized living basil plants that are sold in most of the grocery stores around Victoria. They disappeared over the winter and I was crushed at the thought that maybe they had gone out of business… but today I saw their plants and my mouth watered and here I am!!
I made 5 Minute Fresh Basil (page 127 of LDV) tonight because it’s soooo simple to make and because it’s a fresh un-cooked sauce the basil – fresh tomato flava gives me goosebumps.
I’m am so happy to have fresh basil back in my grocery store again that I’m going to give you the recipe!! 🙂
5 Minute Fresh Basil Pasta
Pasta (enough for 2 people)
4 medium tomatoes, roughly chopped
2 tbsp oil (flax, olive, hemp, etc)
2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup fresh basil, tightly packed
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
Cook the pasta. Chop one of the tomatoes and set aside for later. In a food processor blend the remaining tomatoes, oil, garlic, basil, salt and pepper. Drain and return the noodles to the pot. Stir in sauce and chopped tomatoes. Serve immediatly. YUMMMMMMY!!!
