A quickie....supper for 4

Get your heads out of the gutter....just wanted to share our supper last night.  It was quick, it was painless, it was GREAT, and it was clean and healthy....I like those kind of suppers so we can eat and I can spend time with my boys before the go to bed...the 1 year old gets tired about 7p.m. so we don't get much time with him...
Plus with this recipe, I get to use basil from my herb plants growing on my window sill...so excited for summer to transplant these babies and get a real garden growing....my husband I just love it and he told me that I could get a greenhouse so we could start growing veggies during the winter...WOOOHHOOO...
