yum... just a few minor adjustments. I used a mix of cherry and juliet tomatoes from my garden ... i doubled the garlic and used about 4 Tbsp of basil. Served over penne regate. Lovely!

I liked it a lot as well as my family! I made it just today with a few alterations and it came out great! I put a whole glass of wine instead of chicken stock because I didn't have any and a tad more basil (maybe half a teaspoon cause I cut more) and just before I put it out of the fire (am I saying it right?! lol) I add a pinch of sugar to sweeten it a bit!! As I said before turned out great!! Thanks!
