Featured Ingredient

Adding fresh basil to any pasta is amazing,  but adding this combo together gives your dish an intense boost of flavour. It’s all about flavour! This paste can be prepped and refrigerated for a few days.


1 med bulb of garlic

12 basil leaves

3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil


Peel garlic and cut ends off of each clove. Using the blade of a knife, place the flat side of the knife on top of the  garlic and just give  the top of the blade a smash with the palm of your hand. Give it a quick chop and repeat smashing exercise until garlic is a paste.

Finely chop 12 Basil leaves. Place garlic and basil in a small mixing bowl then add 3 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Mix with a fork and you’re done!

Note: You could use a small food processor to mix these together, too. Other herbs with garlic suggestions – Rosemary, Thyme, Sage, and more.
