    My husband and I LOVE this recipe! We made it a couple of times last summer, when we had fresh tomatoes and basil from our garden. Hubby had me look it up again so we can make it for his mom! It’s delicious, and healthy for us–no salt!

    This was very good, indeed!! I would add maybe a half teaspoon of salt and make sure to use a yellow onion instead of a red one. You must try it, it’s delicious!!!

    Delicious and an easy way to use those fresh Roma’s and basil from the garden!

    After 45 years of marriage, I just can tell by looking at the ingredients & prep, it’ll be De-lovely [for you old timers who remember Cole Porter]. My hubby’s words: yummy in the tummy.
