I used fresh green beans, tomatoes, and basil from the garden. Really enjoyed this dish. Full of flavor! Thanks! Made for 123 Hit Wonders.
Excellent veggie recipe! Super easy & the flavor combination was refreshing. The fresh sweet basil makes this dish really pop. There is nothing better than finding a veggie recipe that the kids will eat & this was one of them. It was a sophisticated adult recipe, but at the same time it had beautiful color & a sweet aroma that the kids couldn't resist. Thanks for posting. Made & enjoyed in Don's memory.
