I made this today, minus the onions and basil (neither the Mister nor I eat them), and it is delicious! I marinated it for about 5 hours before trying, but it was wonderful, and the smell is lovely. Thanks for sharing! (I also cut up larger tomatoes. Cherry tomatoes just don't seem to have that 'real' tomato taste, to me!)

Delicious! Like reviewer "Lazarus," we also cut up larger tomatoes, since that's what we had around.
