I used a mix of basil, parsley, thyme and rosemary. Each herb carries it’s own intense flavor which pairs nicely with grilled foods, but feel free to create your own combo that you might prefer.

  1. Marie,
    This is terrific, just grilled some plain old chicken breasts and this paste made them delicious. Using on thick slabs of zucchini today, will add some chopped mint to the paste.
    General question, I cook your recipes routinely. You use pecorino romano often rather than parm for the extra punch. Have you found a suitable grocery store brand or do you only buy the great stuff from Italian deli. I know you have easy access.

  2. This looks amazing, but I want to ask that is it good to store this herbal paste for long time in refrigerator?

  3. Marie, to print a recipe takes 18 pages in the case of stuffed artichokes. Most people would just like the recipe and instruction set without the pix.
    Can you provide a print option just for the written recipe?

    • Hi, The artichoke post has no recipe card at the bottom that’s why you can’t print it with options to take out the photos, only my posts with the recipe card at the bottom allows you to do that. I just gave instructions through the post because which I thought was pretty easy to put together without exact measurements. Most of the time I use the recipe card at the bottom but with some I just give verbal instructions throughout.
