The purpose of What’s For Dinner? is to provide you a recipe with items on sale this week, with no more than 10 ingredients, and coming in at under $10 per meal.
Whenever I have fresh basil in the house their are two things I like to do with it – put it on pizza or put it on pasta. Since Hubs is super-secret with all his pizza recipes, we’ll have to settle on a pasta recipe this week. I know this recipe looks simple, but it can be because all of the ingredients are high quality. And to be honest, I prefer a simple pasta in the summer over a heavy red sauce. Remember, sometimes simple dishes can be extra-ordinary when you use better ingredients.

Ronzoni Pasta and Cal-Ann Basil from Hen House
