Note :

While this best made with vine-ripened tomatoes and fresh garden basil, it is also a flavorful cold weather vegetable dish. If you make it in the fall or winter, it is a good idea to let the tomatoes sit at room temperature for a few days to ripen further, even if they look ripe when you buy them.
