  • You don't really mean 1/2 cup of basil, do you??? And, what would happen if I refrigerated the tomato mixture while it marinates? - 8/21/10

    Don't pack the basil down. It's really not that much. I dont know what would happen if you refigerate the tomatoes but it would be a cold mixture added to a hot pasta and the cheese would take longer to melt.
