      I am in the middle of a bumper crop of heirloom tomatoes and was looking for something fast and easy, using what I had on hand. WOW!!!!!! Was I shocked at how yummy this was. Sometimes I have been known to change up the recipes a bit, but on this one I didn't after reading reviews. Even the husband wanted to get his hands into it and add more oil, garlic and basil. I ended up having to ban him from the kitchen while I was making this dish. This was a great surprise!!!! We were fighting over the serving bowl during dinner!! THANKS!

      Great recipe! made 4 servings and used about 10 romas to do it. Perfect recipe to use if your overwhelmed with tomatoes. I didn't have fresh basil, but the dried basil seemed to do the trick.(1tsp dry). I prolly could of used more basil, but I didn't want to over do it.
