Reviews for Pasta with Basil
"Making for first time for supper tonite. Ma very well use idea from previous post about using fresh mushrooms and another herb to add more *delicious*."
"Added 1/2 cup fresh mushrooms and a couple cloves of garlic to the onion and sauted the whole mess. That was good. I would double or triple the veggies though, if I made this again. The overall effect without the veggies was quite bland."
