I have certain pantry staples.
One is Pasta Sauce.
Specifically, Sweet Basil Marinara.
Only Sweet Basil Marinara.
Someday I may find a new favorite, but Basil is my favorite.

Check out this article I found on Food Network, 50 Things to Make with Pasta Sauce. For a "free" diet, it was fun to find several ideas that would work for the Pickles! We made the one you see pictured above: Onion and garlic sauteed in olive oil until tender, stirring in Great Northern Beans until heated through and topped with yes, you guessed it.
It has Basil in its name.
