    Used different ingredients. This was a good recipe. I made some modifications: use dried Italian seasoning instead of the fresh, added a splash of balsamic vinegar and added some salt and crushed chillies. The basic recipe just seems way too bland. Even with these modifications, I would probably make it stronger tasting next time. Overall, this is a great recipe...just needs some spice. Would definitely make it again. Enjoy!  -  08 Oct 2008


    I made this to take with me to a dinner. It was served on cold, garlic rubbed, toasted bread, and it was really very good. I added a small amount of olive oil with half a clove of crushed garlic to the tomato and basil mix.  -  02 Apr 2011


    We had it on a cold wintery day with some nice home made minestrone soup and it was BEAUTIFUL! Thanks for a great recipe. I drissled garlic infused E V olive oil on the bread as I was out of whole cloves and it was good substitute.  -  01 May 2009
