This recipe is incredible! It's the best sauce I've ever had in my life. I make it as often as I can. I grow the basil in my garden so it's extra flavorful. I've reduced the oil from 1 cup t...

Mmm...this was very good. The recipe, as written, makes 2 cups. I used 3 cloves garlic instead of 4, and found it was plenty. A bit of lemon juice mixed in will help prevent browning, if you're...
