This was easy to make. I loved the flavor the fresh basil gave the sauce. I also used my tomatoes from the garden and doubled the recipe since I have so many tomatoes outside. I only added 3 cups of the water but wish I added less. The sauce was runny and we like ours thicker. So next time, I'll use 1 cup water and if needed I'll add a couple of teaspoons of Clear Jel to help thicken it. Made for *Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup 2008* game
