    This is absolutely BEAUTIFUL and I changed nothing. Hubby has a bad tooth, and needs to see the dentist, which he can do in a few days, meanwhile, serving this as "soft" food, worked brilliantly. I will be serving this often though,. regardless, the taste is fabulous. The only thing I will add next time is some freshly cut basil..will complement the tomato taste well I think.
