I’ve been wanting to make this pasta ever since I saw it appear on Woks of Life in May. Unfortunately (or fortunately?) a pair of doves made a nest in our Thai basil plants so we couldn’t kick them out and harvest it. When I was able to get to the Asian supermarket in the suburbs, I went ahead and doubled the pesto recipe. Stored it in a jar, I’ve been using it in sandwiches, chicken salad, and even pizza.
Do yourself a favor and make this Thai Basil Pesto pasta, stat! If you can’t find Thai basil you can sub in regular basil or even cilantro.
