What to Do With All the Tomatoes?

My Mom grows her own tomatoes. She dropped a box of them on us last weekend. They are the best tomatoes of the year, but they are ripe and if we don't eat them now they will go bad. Since it is Works For Me Wed., I thought I would share my Eat Tomatoes as Fast as You Can Recipe. I saw some cute British chef on The Today Show years ago do this and it is great!
  • First, cook what ever pasta you choose. I like it best with Angle Hair Multi grain Pasta.

  • All you have to do is quarter the tomatoes and squeeze them with your hands into a mixing bowl. This is great for kiddos to help with!

  • Mix in olive oil, basil, I like to add fresh mozzarella and oregano as well.

  • After you strain the pasta, mix in the tomato concoction.

Wallah, a great light summer pasta that you can serve hot or cold....It is what we will be having for dinner tonight and the next night, and the next night......


  1. Yum, that sounds good. I expect to get bombarded with tomatoes from my mom soon!

    That...is...an AWESOME jogging stroller.

  2. What I would give for some garden-fresh 'maters! That "recipe" sounds yummy.

  3. I have the same problem with tomatoes right now so thanks! BTW, love your blog name! LOL!

  4. that sounds great! I'll try it. i also like to make salsa. cube the tomatoes really small, add onion, and jalapeno and cilantro if desired. get a spice mix for salsa to mix in. YUM! you can also freeze this and have fresh summer treats in the fall.

  5. Can't wait to try this! Great idea!


  6. Great idea. Easy and sounds yummy. I've jotted it down already.
