Preheat oven to 425. Peel and chop tomatoes and place in bowl. Add basil and 1 T. olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Mix. Cover and set in refrigerator until ready to use. (Do not leave in longer than an hour as the tomatoes will start to mush.) Make garlic into a paste by adding salt, press down with knife, repeat until like a paste.
