Very easy & delish! I didn't have the exact ingredients and I also added some extras... I used elbow pasta instead of rotini and I threw in a package of frozen peas as well as 1/2 cup of parmesean cheese. Because of the parmesean, I didn't add any extra salt. But keep the basil if you're going to make any changes - it definitely does give it a fresh taste! This is a perfect cookout side dish that I will make again!
