This is one of my "new" all-time favorites. The recipe is simplicity itself. My grandmother, Maggie, who was a chef, said you need to make things simple so you can "taste" what you are cooking. Tomatoes and Basil with olive oil, what a wonderful combination. You really have a wonderful, tasty, beautiful, and certainly easy recipe. It is worthy of any "top-drawer" restaurant. Thanks so much Bev....a keeper!
I didn't have fresh basil so it wasn't as good as it could have been! Next time I would use fresh basil! Thanks for posting!
Very delicious! I made these for a party and everyone loved them..the only thing I did differently was add a little garlic.
