      Tried this with a couple of changes (skinned but not seeded the tomatoes, and used basil) and it was delicious! Thanks!

      Really lovely recipe thanks - Tried it both with and without cream (for those with intolerances) and both were fantastic. The without cream resulted in a more tangy flavour and the with cream dish was very smooth and velvety.
