Ahh tomatoes. Our plants are huge but we have yet to see fully ripened tomatoes. We seriously can’t wait. Evie takes very good care of them, making sure they’re watered almost daily. I had to stake them with branches already because they’re getting huge and […]
I just threw this together when we needed a side the other night.
I can’t tell you how much I love fresh basil! The smell when you pick it, the taste, everything! Evie loves it too! She’ll pick leaves right off the plant and eat them when we’re gardening! Girl after my own heart!!
BASIL GARLIC PASTA
1/2 box pasta
2 cloves garlic- chopped
6-8 small leaves of fresh basil
2Tbs salted butter
Black pepper -to taste
Handful of fresh grated Parmesan
1. Cook and drain pasta according to directions.
2. Stir in butter and coat pasta.
3. Cut basil into strips(I stack the leaves, roll them up then cut)
4. Toss garlic, basil, and pepper into pasta.
5. Top with as much Parmesan as you desire!
It was really good!
And I’m not gonna lie, I was surprised considering I just threw it together!

Evie loves to garden. She has a ton of pots all over the yard with her “flowers” She takes great care of them, making sure they’re watered every day. She takes especially great care of her tomatoes.
Every summer we’ve always grown basil. Where we have it in the yard seems to be the the best place for it! They get so huge! They’re excellent for making sauce(which I happen to have simmering on the stove already since 9 am) and caprese salad!
They’re also great for eating the leaves straight off the plant, thats what Evie does! Their smell once you pick the leaves you can smell all the way across the yard. They smell sooooooo good!!
We’ll share pictures whenever we have the ingredients for the caprese salad! It’s so easy and refreshing! Plus we’re growing tomatoes, so we’ll have plenty on hand as well!
The plants are so plentiful, friends and family always pluck a few leaves for them to take home every time they visit!
