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 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.

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!
