Do you love pasta? I love pasta. I've been eating so much pasta lately. I think it is becoming a part of my daily rotini!

There are so many great types of pasta to enjoy. One of my favorites is a Rollatini and Linguini combination made with freshly rolled eggplant slices and Bari’s infused Basil Olive Oil. Basil is considered the most royal of herbs. Its reign – rumored to have started in India – has been as varied as many royal leaders of the past – some were loved, others considered dangerous and still others a guardian of the people.

Basil has spread to all regions of the globe over the past 4,000 years and has now found its way into your Olive Oil, your food and on to the dinner table. Give your family the royal treatment tonight with my Basil & Eggplant Rollatini Linguini and Bread.

Yum Yum Yum!!!
