Oh My Gosh! This is delicious. I made it with fresh asparagus and blanched just as the note suggested and cooled in cold water with ice cubes to chill quickly to stop the cooking process. I made the recipe exactly as stated, right down to my fresh picked basil. This recipe is to die for. Thanks Mr. Food.

We are currently experiencing technical issues with Pinterest, as the site has recently changed their image requirements. We hope to figure out a way around this problem shortly.

I would love to tell you what I think .... IT WON'T ALLOW ME TO PIN IT
