Spaghetti Aglio Olio with Buttered Chicken & Homegrown Genovese Basil

I just wanted to make the name of the dish extra long because I am so extremely pleased with myself.  Heh.

So this was what we had for dinner last night.  It was a last minute preparation, given that yesterday was a super busy day for me.

I thought this was a perfectly simple dish to execute, but I had forgotten that we had run out of olive oil!  So I gave this a sinful twist by adding some butter to replace the oil.

Oh yeah, and I used my precious homegrown Genovese basil leaves.  They are precious because I have watched them grow with so much love and care.  At one point, I thought my Genovese basil would die for sure, but they stood firm and strong, weathered through the dry season and have begun to flourish now.  I’m so glad to be able to harvest them. 🙂

Genovese basil tastes just like sweet basil.  LOVE LOVE LOVE the scent of basil!  And even better because this is 100% pesticide-free homegrown stuff!
