Tonight I was in the mood for something fresh and full of flavor. As of today I have decided to revert back to a primarily vegetarian diet; with the exception of dairy and the occasional seafood indulgence. So, in order to kick things off right, I cooked up a light whole grain pasta dish with broccoli, basil, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, garlic, and giardiniera peppers. I grow fresh basil in my kitchen and am always looking for an excuse to use it. As far as I’m concerned, fresh basil is one of the greatest things on the planet. Delicious.
Stay tuned for future vegetarian creations.
