    Stacky5's Note:

    This recipe came from Giada de Laurentis on the Food Network. I saw her make this and I was amazed at how simple it was! It's like being a gourmet cook yet fooling everyone--!!! Tastes so light and fresh, but yet so satisfying for those pasta cravings we sometimes get! Very Italian...Yum!

      This is also in one of her cookbooks. I've made it a few times. I like it but I don't love it (and yet I keep making it...says something). I often add asparagus and or avocado to this as well. Last time I used a whole avocado instead of any olive oil and blended all of the sauce together. Pretty tasty!

      Really enjoyed this. I cut the olive oil down by half. Didn`t have basil so I used fresh thyme. Next few times I will try adding parsley, capets, sundried tomato, artichoke hearts, shrimp or chicken. I zested 1 large lemon

      I made this for a side dish to go with some fish and the kids really liked this. I wasn't sure I liked the olive oil in this, I thought it overpowered the dish. However, I will continue to make this as my kids kept eating and Thank you for a kids favorite in my house.
