I had this at a recent potluck and it was wonderful! Make sure you use Thai Basil as it has a very different taste from Italian Basil. This recipe is fast and fairly easy to make, but requires constant stirring."

Gosh, I have so many curacao, red nail polish, coffee, country music, a good pie crust, Thai food. Did I miss anything? (I cut way, way back on the oil and it was just fabulous.)

No need to get take out anymore! This is a great recipe, thank you so much! I did add one scrambled egg, which added nice flavor. PAC Fall '12.
