1 (16 ounce) package
butter or margarine, melted
extra virgin olive oil
fresh Thai basil leaves
salt to taste
freshly grated provolone cheese
This didn't work for us. We thought the taste was too bland, probably because I didn't use enough basil. The recipe needs to be more specific about how much (i.e. packed, rough weight). I might try this sauce again with rice noodles (more basil, sans provolone and butter). But I would highly recommend a regular pesto if you're making a traditional pasta.
This was very good, but too much garlic. I used 3 cloves and even THAT was too much. I'll use only 2 cloves next time.
