Excerpt from SF Chronicle 05/06/98 Food Section see www.sfgate.com ; Busted by HANNEMAN Notes: "This is wonderfully smooth and creamy even though it contains just a tiny bit of cream. It can be as puckery tart as you like, depending on how much lemon you use, with bites of black olive and sweet basil to punctuate the Mediterranean flavor.

brewtal1 3 years agoWe loved this! Next time we'll put grilled chicken and pine nuts in it. Also I will make more sauce. The lemon and Basil compliment each other so well. Great dish.
