When I want comfort food, I usually make this. There are so many things about this recipe that take me back to my childhood. I hope it becomes a favorite recipe of yours too. Enjoy!

The aroma of the garlic and onion cooking together is wonderful and then add the basil and... well it just makes your mouth water. The basil in the dumplings is very different and a nice change.

This is so easy to make. Pair with a nice glass of cold sweet tea and you're ready to go! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
