1 TBSP Old Bay Seasoning or MORE...to taste!! i use 2 TBSP!!!!
FRESH BASIL!!!! this is a must!!! i use about 4-5 leaves and just break them into small pieces
Zest of 1 lemon, and 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice DONT SKIP THIS!!! TRUST ME!!

add the rest of the lemon into your water for some lemonade!!
add the tomato paste, hot sauce and old bay seasoning
add your butter and milk....and then....
