BasilDid you store basil last summer? I did it and I'm using it to add a summer touch to some dishes, like this hearty pasta.

So, so easy, Graziana! Love the idea of popping in a cube of frozen basil. I hope to have done my homework this coming summer to reserve it for cold days like this.

Thank you very much for your lovely PPN recipe!

That looks delicious. My basil plants seemed to die before I could use them all up last year. I shall have to remember to freeze some when summer comes, what a good idea. Thank you :)

Frozen basil is not like fresh one but is a blessed ray of sunshine during winter!
