My family loves Basil, and I found this recipe, when I was looking to use an abundance of basil. If you like Basil Pesto, you will like this.

Tasted great, esp. with lots of cheese! I added chicken tenderloins that I marinated in a sundried tomato hummus, which added additional flavor. It also makes a great sauce for a cold pasta salad using penne pasta. Tip: use a food processor, not a blender, to make the sauce. It gets stuck in the blender blades and is really tough to get out.

  2. Cook spaghetti in boiling salted water until tender: Drain well.
