lately, i have become obsessed with basil.
i'm buying it by the bunches, and i cannot stop!
its delicious, healthy and makes foods seem a whole lot more fancy.
two nights ago, i had my husbands family over for dinner. i used a whole lot of spinach and basil to make a pesto and used my food processor for the first time ever. once i had made this green goodness i baked it with some chicken, tortellini and cheese. Mmmm.
last night, we had my family over for dinner and i was bitten by the basil bug yet again. i used some fresh basil leaves in my sauce and used some for caprice salad.
this picture was taken with my new camera, isn't it pretty? (amateur, but pretty!)
