This was pretty good. I didn't have quite enough fresh basil so I added a bit of dry to round it out and that seemed to work. My only caveat is that it was pretty sweet (I used sweetened applesauce) and less applesauce would have been fine. Next time I will halve the amount. In terms of preperation, it couldn't have been quicker or easier and is destined to be a regular around here. Thanks for posting this easy dinner.
