Summer is our season for dinner parties, but not the fancy kind. Instead we do super casual nights with friends. We think up a delicious meal that will appeal to everyone and ask people to bring something so everyone feels involved. Recently we served up this pasta. No one could decide what was the real star of the show, the creamy pasta or the garlic bread!
The pasta is made with a simple white sauce that gets kicked into summer mode by blending in fresh basil and adding a zip of lemon right before serving.
