Parmesan, pasta and basil…a hearty trinity!

Pasta cooked and drained and swirled with a very good virgin olive oil, a dash of rock salt and a swizzle of black pepper plus a handful of fresh, fragrant, beautiful basil with shavings of the bard of cheeses.

Sometimes keeping things simple is all that is needed to make people smile at the supper table. And good ingredients. These three were made for each other….
