This recipe was easy to make. I grow a lot of basil on my porch and was looking for a nice recipe in which to use it. Along with loving fresh basil, my husband and I love chunky tomatoes and angel hair, and onions and garlic too. Two changes I made: 1.) I didn't use as much oil (I never do) and 2.) I didn't add as much water as was suggested in the recipe. We loved this recipe and will make it often.
