This recipe is SO easy, and so good with any kind of mild fish. We also use the tomatoes to top pasta. This recipe is SO easy, and so good with any kind of mild fish. We also use the tomatoes to top pasta.

  • This recipe was easy and delicious. I dont like too much basil so I didnt put that much in it but I guess when it cooks down the flavor loses its strength so dont be afraid to put the full amount of basil in. Also, dont forget the salt! - 7/3/11
