How to Make It

Step 1

Process softened butter and garlic cloves in a food processor until smooth. Add basil leaves, and pulse 3 to 4 times or until basil is finely chopped. Store in the refrigerator up to 1 week, or freeze in airtight containers up to 4 months.

Step 2

If desired, shape butter into a log; wrap in wax paper, and chill. When firm, slice into smaller rounds, and freeze.

Step 3

Serve with hot crusty French bread or baked potatoes. Toss with hot, cooked pasta and Parmesan cheese or steamed vegetables. Try it on a grilled cheese with mozzarella, sliced tomatoes, and crumbled bacon.
