This recipe is good on so many levels.  

First, it's easy to make and if you are short on time it's ready start to finish in only 15 minutes.  

Second, it's FRESH!

I used fresh basil from my indoor herb garden (remember the Hanging Gutter Planter I shared last month...it is yielding herbs like crazy and I plucked the basil right from the gutter).  

My tomato plant isn't yielding any tomatoes yet but once it does I'll pick some of those and make this again - my family and I loved it!

If you don't have an herb garden, my favorite place to buy fresh herbs is Walmart.

I like to buy the plants rather than just a bundle and you can find potted herbs right in the produce section for less than $4.00. It's a fairly good-sized plant for the money.
