Planting your own herbs is extremely worth it because the most work you do is plant them, then let nature do the rest of the work. Because I live in the South, the weather is optimal as it rains often and there is plenty of sun. As basil is my favorite herb, I scattered plenty of seeds in my backyard and within a week or two, I was harvesting basil leaves and utilizing them in anyway possible. Today’s recipe is a simple spaghetti recipe with basil and parmesan cheese. Few ingredients, but plenty of flavor.
- 4 oz. whole wheat spaghetti
- 1/3 c. tomato sauce
- plenty of chopped basil, about 3 tbsp.
- shaved pieces of parmesan cheese
- Combine all ingredients.
- garnish the top with parmesan shaves, using a fruit peeler to shave thick strips of parmesan cheese.
