“In the Summer when the tomatoes were over flowing from the garden, my Father used to make this. He told me his Grandfather, Frank Scavo, used to make it for him. The longer it sits the better it gets. I recommend preparing it first before you begin dinner so it has about an hour to marinate. If you are using fresh basil from the garden bump it up to 2 T. chopped. If you are using fresh basil from the jar, use just 1.”
