      hipQuest, Wow, what subtle delicious flavors! I served this dish twice, once with the shrimp which I first sauteed in butter and Creole seasoning and once without the shrimp as a side dish with grilled Cornish game hens. My favorite was without the shrimp because the flavor of the basil and cream is so delicate it's almost a shame to add anything because it's perfect. But DH liked it with the spicy sauteed shrimp! Hence the 5+stars. Made with fat free half&half and used a 1/2 cup wine which I cooked down before adding the cream and added Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Made and reviewed for Fall PAC 2008.
