One day while I was out doing my normal grocery shopping I stumbled upon some fresh basil. And we're talking so fresh it still had the roots and dirt attached! But that made me think... Oh my goodness! I could grow my own basil and save a lot of money. Basil is easy to grow inside your house and is low-maintenance. Plus you get that "eating for free" feeling. You should try it!
So whenever my basil leaves are large and plentiful enough, I make this next recipe. There's nothing like taking a plant straight from it's root and eating it. Of course if you don't grow your own basil you can always find it at your local grocery store as well. ;)
I made this Gluten Free as well as Dairy Free so Audrey can eat it. It's so yummy, you wont even miss the cheese! Of course if you are not vegan, you can always sprinkle a little fresh Parmesan cheese on top for an extra bonus.

of asparagus hidden in this one...)
