"Used larger tomatoes( the vine ones that have no taste raw, but are delicious cooked) and sauteed them first with a little fresh gartic ntil they were mushy, and then I added the corn and fresh basil and cooked for 3-5 minutes more."

"This was very good... Used canned diced tomatoes since that's what I had on hand, and added some fresh garlic... Might add some sliced green onion next time..."
