This recipe is adapted from cooking pleasures magazine. Please use fresh herbs in this, dried just won't give the intended result. Originally, this was entered as a private recipe until basil came into season and I was able to try it myself. I just made this for dinner tonight, and it was really good. Although the garlic sounds like a lot, I could barely taste it, so don't be afraid to of the amount called for. This sauce is fairly mild, so I'd advise tasting it as it's warming, and adding whatever you think will please your family's tastes. After sampling this recipe once, I plan to make it again with different herbs, as they are in season. One combination that comes to mind in basil, thyme and organo. Please note any combinations you try in your review, so that we all have a dish that's not just for the middle of the summer. Last note, this calls for making the sauce in a blender - I can't find mine so I used the food processor, which worked perfectly.
