  • I liked it! It has quite a 'kick,' with the garlic/fresh basil coming through full force. I only made a single batch with my magic bullet. Maybe the magic bullet isn't the way to go with this receipe unless one triples the recipe. I plan on doing that next time. :) - 9/5/09

    Yes the garlic can be a bit much! Feel free to scale down the garlic for those who like it a little milder. :)
