I am not a lover of Summer, but I do take comfort in the abundance of basil that is available again! As I usually do, after the first couple of warm days I recklessly planted an abundance of basil seedlings (only to see them wither away when the next cold spell arrived!).
However, if you are prepared to wait for your own basil to grow or willing to buy it from the supermarket, I recommend that you use it in this recipe. It's absolutely delicious.
I like to serve this with lightly buttered baby new potatoes and a mixed salad - and of course, a crisp white Yarra Valley wine!
