Recipe Notes

  • *Don't use stale dried basil (as in one that has been sitting in the cupboard for a year or two). A fresher pack is best.
  • **I use the the pokey side of a box grater to get the fine grate. Just be careful. Also store bought grated parmesan such as Kraft can be used as well when in a rush.
