My husband made a wonderful side dish of Fresh Basil Pasta the other day. It was incredibly easy to make and I loved using the fresh basil that came right from our back porch.
Fresh Basil Pasta
4 oz vermicelli
6 fresh chopped basil leaves
2 T butter
2 T grated parmasean cheese
Sprinkle of garlic powder
Cook pasta as directed. Drain pasta and add butter, cheese, garlic powder, and basil. Serve warm.
We ate this side dish with chicken and it tasted wonderful! For more great recipes, check out $5 Dinners for the $5 Dinner Challenge!
