It's fair to say I am pretty obsessed with this tomato basil butter sauce. We ate it with chicken, fish, and this past weekend I made it with white beans since we had some vegetarian friends coming over and it was so so good. The beans soak up all the delicious sauce and the butter makes everything taste indulgent. Defintiely have some bread, rice, or polenta nearby to soak up the extra sauce. Yum.
