Food for Thought: Basil

By this time of Summer, my basil is plentiful! Not the prettiest due to stupid "pincher bugs" eating holes in it, but still delish. This week I made a Yellow Squash Risotto with fresh basil. It was the best risotto I have ever made! The recipe came from Cucina Rustica and zucchini was the original squash used, but the neighbors had a plethora of yellow, so...I will gladly share the recipe, it had fresh mozzarella in it, just let me know.

Last night, since I had fresh mozzarella and plenty of basil, I made Pizza Margherita. Since Pizza Margherita is made with all fresh ingredients, not to mention easy, it is truly a Summer pizza.
