|Basil Infused Olive Oil|
7 large fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Place the basil leaves in a small microwave safe bowl with the olive oil. Mash the leaves into the oil with a fork. Do this thoroughly to release as much flavor from the leaves as possible.
There are so many uses for this infused olive oil! Drizzle it over pizza. Add it to pasta sauce or salad dressing! Drizzle it over sliced mozzarella with sliced tomatoes and balsamic vinegar. The possibilities are endless!
