So easy my husband made it! This recipe is great, and the basil and garlic really make a difference. We use this as a BBQ side dish, or just as a healthy snack while we're watching a video. Sesame seeds sprinkled on top look great for summer lunches with friends.

We really liked this recipe. Reheats very well and is just a great little side dish. Very easy to put together on a weeknight.
