Fresh basil (which is available in grocery stores year round) lends terrific flavor to these tasty chicken rolls. As the fantastic finishing touch, toss the pasta with purchased or homemade pesto just before serving.

When plums are in season, I make this every other week. I originally adapted the recipe for use with chicken, but discovered it was even better with pork. I fixed it for 70 people for my granddaughter’s christening and everyone wanted the recipe.
Folks may be intimidated to prepare an elegant crown roast of pork, but it's actually an easy entree. Our four grown sons and their families expect this every Christmas. —Mary Ann Balam, Tujunga, California
