This recipe was inspired by the "Recco" pasta I had at Primi Urban Cafe in Saint Petersburg, FL. From the menu, it lists curry, basil, and garlic as some key ingredients. Since I love curry and basil flavors, I decided to experiment in making a similar dish.

Oh man, this looks & sounds so good. Thank you.
