This is an excellent recipe. I had no idea how much two ounces of basil is (used fresh from our garden), so I used a good-sized handful. I cut this recipe in half for three people. Using my Vitamix blender, the marinade part of this didn't chop up fine until I got all of the ingredients in the blender, including the balsamic. I only had an hour to marinade, so I cut my chicken breasts in half. I removed them from the marinade and grilled them quickly over very low heat. I used another "handful" of basil with the pasta and tomatoes (the fresh, uncooked tomato/basil combination here is excellent). We topped it with a little fresh parmesan. Keep in mind that when you're serving uncooked ingredients like olive oil, balsamic, etc. - you want to use top-shelf quality. My 8yo son gave this two thumbs-up! We will definitely keep it in our summer rotation, when basil and tomatoes are at their peak.
