Very smooth and creamy, delicious sauce. I like to serve this with shrimp or scallops, but it also is very good alongside chicken.

I really liked the taste of this, but I think I screwed it up,because it got too thick. Could be blamed on many factors, like a new pot for the fresh angel hair, and my 12 year-old daughter breathing down my neck while I was trying to throw this and other things together for our meal. It is very easy to make,and I too, love basil. I'll try again,when I have my alone time back. Thanks!

Worth more than 5-stars. I had no idea I could make such a great tasting alfredo sauce. The basil flavor is a definite plus. We had this without any added seafood or chicken but that would be a fine addition. We thoroughly enjoyed just the pasta and sauce. Thanks Inez :-)

Made this today for dinner. Added chunks of cooked chicken and small pieces of steamed broccoli. Would be good with whole wheat pasta as well.
