Basil sauce

There comes a time in everyone's life when the appetite for a snack with cheese sauce must be fulfilled. It can happen in many ways. So many that the mind can hardly comprehend them. Luckily he can improvise them on the spot, with a little common sense and a serious selection of cheeses in the fridge.
Today we talk about the appetite for basil, fragrant green in the middle of winter. What more faithful wife does His Majesty have if not mozzarella? And what more mysterious friendship makes him happy if not the one with Parmesan? Let's gather them together and melt them in an Italian summer dream dreamed of by a pro-American Romanian with a shield at Deveselu, sweet and normal potatoes in the cellar in the block and Brussels sprouts in the Made in Taiwan refrigerator.
& # 8211 250 gram mozzarella
& # 8211 100 grams of mayonnaise
& # 8211 150 grams cream
& # 8211 100 grams of Parmesan cheese
& # 8211 a handful of basil leaves
& # 8211 salt, pepper and smoked paprika


Grated mozzarella is mixed with mayonnaise, cream and parmesan.


The basil leaves, with a little salt and 2 teaspoons of olive oil are turned into a paste with a blender. Incorporate into the cheese sauce and heat over low heat for 10 minutes or until the mozzarella pieces melt and a creamy sauce is obtained.


Leave to cool for half an hour for easy hardening and contrast with hot vegetables.


Sweet and normal potatoes are cut into long sticks and not very thin. Whole Brussels sprouts are boiled for 3 minutes in boiling water and drained. Roll together with 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil, put in a pan on baking paper, sprinkle with salt, pepper and bake for 30 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius. Just before the end, a powder of smoked paprika is given.


It's a gentle winter snack for the whole family. If it occurs to you to put pickled hot peppers or cayenne in the cheese sauce as I am tempted every time I prepare something, refrain this time. It's another fish dish, I wanted to say cheese, full of microbial manhood, but lacking the grace and delicacy of the meeting between mozzarella and basil.


P.S.
I rode on a thread of basil
And I didn't make pesto out of it at all.
And I also craved green,
No pasta, as you might think.
