      Very flavorful, bright and fresh! I started this with defrosted basil puree that I had made last fall when my garden was overflowing and the approaching cold weather was threatening. So I added the rest of the ingredients to the food processor with the basil puree (I used about 1 cup of basil puree) and followed the recipe from there. It was gobbled down by my family, with picky son even asking for seconds. Yummy! Thanks, Chef Kate! Made for ZWT 4.
