This was very tasty and easy to make. Next time I think I'll seed the tomatoes to reduce the liquids a bit and get a less runny consistency. I'll probably at least double the garlic, but then we really love garlic in my house. This was great on bruschetta as an appetizer, and excellent on pasta for a cold summer dinner.
