    Don’t get me started on my basil growing woes, 10 years I have tried with absolutely no success whatsoever, like you I have tried everything from old wives tales through to all the usual technical advice and nada!

    Such a lovely looking and sounding dish, must give it a try even if I have to buy the Basil 😉

      Brian, I am glad I am not the only one. At least I have Liguria’s basil fields close by. I might try to mingle with some farmers to uncover their secrets. The amount of pesto we eat is unbelievable and if successful I will convert all the grass in the garden into basils.

    Well Laura, I am like you–no success whatsoever on growing basil. I thought it was just me! But I do love basil pesto paired with pasta and potatoes—just never put pasta with potatoes together. Now I have to try it.
