From Taste of Home and so wonderful in the summer when tomato and basil are fresh from the garden.

I had a ton of tomatoes and basil from the garden, and this was a wonderful way to use them up! I made this exactly as posted, although I did end up adding a bit more salt. I was surprised, though, that I only ended up with 4 cups or so. This is the perfect low-cal, low-carb, low-salt treat. Thanks for sharing. Made for Tazzy's Week 2 Football Pool win!
