We love pasta in all it’s forms, but classic spaghetti will always be on the list of favorites in our house.  And while we most often eat it with a red sauce, the warmer weather has me pondering ways to give it a spring twist.  What better way to say spring than with fresh herbs?

Spaghetti with Herbed Garlic Butter Sauce #15MinuteSuppers

Gourmet Garden had just been kind enough to send us a cooler full of their beautiful herbs, so I decided to make my Spaghetti with Herbed Garlic Butter Sauce.  It will have your entire kitchen so fragrant with the smell of garlic and basil that you’ll want to eat it straight from the pan.  Fortunately it takes less than 15 minutes start to finish to make, so it will be on your plate soon enough!

It’s so delicious!  My husband has taken a liking to pine nuts and asked that next time I add a few in.  It was a great suggestion, so feel free to add some to yours if you’d like.

  8. I use these all the time in all my meals, i love using them to add flavor to soups, stews, casseroles, marinades, steaks, burgers and even when I’m whipping up omelets.

  9. I love cooking with herbs and spices – and use them ALL the time: my “Spice Rack” is literally a library/cupboard with with little jars and tins…

    The problem is pre-dried herbs that sit around in opened containers – sometimes for years – tend to lose their essence (their “soul”) that’s what I love about Gourmet Garden Herbs & Spices – fresh taste at your fingertips – all of the time.

    Cooking with herbs opens up all whole world of flavors and tastes really makes cooking fun and meals come alive. Herbs can make “healthy foods” people think they don’t like suddenly taste flavorful and yummy – and help you cut way down on the use of unwanted salt/sodium in your diet.

    We always grown our own herb garden indoors and out – and I can’t imagine cooking without them (I even have a travel size kit of 30 different herbs and spices!)

    Thanks for the recipe!

    We’ve dressed your basic recipe up for a fancier dinner with the addition of shrimp, chicken and or mushrooms, broccoli, spinach, halved grape tomatoes – so many mix and match combination can elevate this already yummy recipe into a “for company” dinner anytime.

    Thanks again!

  11. I would use the herbs in my everyday cooking to make everything yummy!
