In Honor of Basil

Lemon Basil Pasta

You guys! My plants. They’re not dead. They’re growing this year. It’s a miracle of all miracles. So far the only one to produce any bounty is basil, but I have hope for the rest.

It’s growing like a crazy plant, so here are a few of my favorite recipes I plan to use it in:

  • Lemon Basil Chicken Pasta by the Pioneer Woman. {She’s a genius. This is one of T’s faves and is pictured up above because I couldn’t wait any longer to make it. It’s a good one to sneak spinach in, too. Shh…don’t tell!}
  • Savory Sweet Life’s Tomato Basil Mozzerela Salad {A favorite summer side dish of mine.}
  • Newbie: Basil Balsamic Vinaigrette over at ModFruGal. {Um, yum. #cantwaittotrythis #mightgomakeitrightnow}

And these, my friends, are the ways in which I’m celebrating my fierce little basil plant’s success.

Suggestions for other delicious basil-inclusive recipes are appreciated.
