I had plenty of garden tomatoes and basil, and this was a great use for them! I made this exactly as posted, using a food processor. Since everything was raw, the garlic was very pronounced; however, the rest of the sauce had a very mild flavor, which was different. I found it refreshing and light, but DBF found it on the bland side. It is certainly a matter of taste, and my taste buds enjoyed this! Instead of spaghetti, I used a combination of homemade semoline and whole wheat pasta, which was very light also. Made for PRMR Tag Game.
