From a fantastic award winningregional cookbook from the Junior League of North Harris County (Houston). It is called Texas Ties, and I have NEVER had a bad recipe from the book. I have not tried this one, but it sounds yummy.

Wonderful taste! I used tomatoes from the farmers market. Fresh basil from my garden. I baked them for 2 1/2 hours. The were served in a salad with grilled pork chops. Thanks gourmetmomma. Made for CameraLess Chefs 07.
