I can't have a proper garden because the deer eat everything. Thankfully they don't like basil, but I still keep it close to the house. :)
I snipped some basil off today so they grow larger and fuller.
I wash it, dry it on a paper towel, and then freeze it unless I am making something that day.
I found out the secret to my homemade sauce is the basil. I always thought it was garlic, but basil is the key. Of course I use garlic too.
Oh....I also ONLY use Dei Fratelli Crushed tomatoes...nice and thick.
We have a lot of good cooks out there as well as readers...what do you think the secret to delicious sauce is? :)
