I love this time of year because I can go into my garden and bring things in to cook.  We have planted tomatoes, zucchini, rhubarb, raspberries, chives, parsley(that just kept growing all winter because it was so mild), and we also have basil. Next to garlic, basil has to be my next favourite flavour to put into a meal. I really enjoy making and freezing Pesto so I can use it in many different sauces throughout the winter to add a wonderful fragrant flavour. So when I noticed that my basil was doing so well, I decided that I could make my roasted red pepper pasta for lunch today. As a lunch this would feed two, but as a side dish probably four servings. Sometimes I have used bottled roast red peppers, but when they are plentiful, I roast my own peppers.
