"Go to" meal This is one of my favorite "go to" recipes. It's easy to remember all of the ingredients if (like me) you find yourself roaming around the aisle of the grocery store at the last minute wondering what you want to make for dinner. I like to use kalamata olives instead of oil-cured. I also throw in some capers. Fresh, ripe tomatoes is a must to truly get the most out of this dish. If you can't find fresh basil, I would recommend using basil infused olive oil if it is available. Pros: Simple, fresh, delicious
I am adding this to Meatless Monday menu. I'd eliminate the pasta as the carb count is way too high. Might add a fresh from the garden yellow bell pepper to take the place of the pasta. There is plenty of basil; cinnamon, lemon, and regular. Then, next I will try it with the pasta, but not the beans. Got to be 30g carbs max. I add low/free carb vegetables for the bulk. This might be as good as the cucumber and black eye pea salad. Took it to church recently and they all loved it.
