    This is like summer on a plate! The colors are so vibrant and healthy; now, I am getting very excited to plant my herb garden. The weather is finally warming up and I have plans to put in a variety of basil (which can be so expensive when buying at the grocery store). Your recipe has really brightened up my morning!

    Yay I am ready for summer now! I also love grape tomatoes, just pop them in your mouth and squish them *munch munch munch* or in a yummy pasta dish like this!
