Made this for PAC Spring 2012 and boy was this a hit with my better half...he says I can make this as much times as I want...I did use fresh liguini that I needed to use up instead of angel hair, otherwise followed recipe...great easy fresh taste..I suspect if you did not have fresh basil some pesto in it would do just fine.
