1 cup firmly packed fresh basil leaves, minced

1 cup firmly packed fresh parsley leaves, minced

3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan

3 garlic cloves, or to taste, minced

Fresh parsley to garnish


  1. Make tomato sauce: 
  2. In a bowl combine well all the sauce ingredients and let the sauce stand at room temperature, covered, for at least 1 hour. 
  3. In large pot, bring 5 quarts of salted water to a boil. Add linguine and stir to prevent sticking. Return water to boil and cook until pasta is firm but cooked, approximately 7 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain pasta well. Serve with tomato sauce, and garnish with fresh parsley.
