Basil and Garlic Butter Pasta Recipe


 

Pasta is my guilty pleasure. It's the one ingredient I use more than any other. This recipe is super quick and so full of flavor. It makes a great side dish or meatless main dish. It goes with so many foods and if you don't have fresh basil, you can always substitute with dried. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do!

Basil and Garlic Butter Pasta (print recipe)
