I cut the recipe in half, left out the onions, used ginger-in-a-tube, & used fresh instead of dried basil (didn't add it until the end of the cook time so it wouldn't cook the flavor out). All I have to say is... How in the world did y'all keep your cheese from forming a huge clump? As soon as I added it, it locked onto the ginger, basil & garlic & it all formed one big, gooey clump, in a pool of melted butter. :o( I whisked & whisked but never got it anywhere near "well-blended". I used fresh parmesan grated fine in my food processor, so it was very similiar in texture to the stuff in the can...maybe that was the problem. I liked the flavor combo so I'll try it another time but I'll just grate the cheese on top of the sauce after plating.

This was SO yummy! We used it to dip stir-fried chicken and veggies because we can't eat soy or wheat or tomato but it would also be great thinned and tossed with pasta. I did 1/4c butter and 1/4c oil to get some omega's in our diet. I didn't have green onions so I used white and it was delicious! A new favorite.

I made this sauce for spagetti squash & spaghettini pasta mixed together. It was light, flavourful & deliciously simple to make. It's one of my favorite pasta sauces to make!
