Cookout Cookin’

One thing that seems to go hand in hand with the summer is cookouts. It just seems like a fun thing to do – make a dish and then go hang out with friends, family, or coworkers. The high volume of cookouts is conducive to my desire to cook, and today’s dish is Feta Basil Pasta. Basically, in the spirit of using up food in my kitchen (we have to be practical and prepare for the move!), I needed to make pasta. In addition, I have these massive basil plants – they’re growing so fast that I can’t eat it fast enough.

Left: My basil, thyme, and cilantro plants back in October. Right: My plants today AFTER I picked 1/2 cup of basil. So much green!

With that in mind, I did a quick Google search of basil pasta to see what I could find. This website was the winner, but I didn’t feel like doing the exact recipe, so I left out the mushrooms and olives – of course I didn’t actually measure anything either.

Here’s the result!
