I'm curious - is there a step missing between 14-19? I made a very similar dish, but the tomatoes, olive oil and basil were whirled in the food processor and then added to the sauce.minkie in Springfield loved it
Aha, figured it out! The recipe I tried used 15 fresh roma tomatoes. You whirled them up in the food processor with fresh basil and olive oil and then pour that mixture into the sauce. Everything else is the same. This recipe is FANTASTIC.minkie in Springfield loved it
