   [NAH Editor’s note: We didn't boil or peel the tomatoes and it was still
   delicious.]
   
   DIRECTIONS:
   ÿÿÿÿ
   Fill a pot with enough water to cover the tomatoes.  Bring to a boil and
   drop the tomatoes in.  Remove them after about 10 seconds, then peel and
   chop them.
   
   Mix the tomatoes, basil, garlic, and cheese with the olive oil.  Let stand
   in a covered bowl at room temperature for at least 3 hours.  Cook the
   fusilli.  Drain.  Add the tomato sauce to the hot fusilli.  Mix well.
   Serve warm.
