Our new obsession: herb infused olive oil. Not that olive oil needs any help to be great, but this basil kick makes this one a winner. A little goes a long way so use sparingly. It's a simple equation: Quality protein from the Banza pasta +  Healthy fat from the olive oil + Nutrient dense vegetables= a superstar dinner.
