The taste of a freshly picked, warm from the sun tomato is a wonderful thing indeed. A good, fat, deliciously ripe tomato deserves to be the star in dish. Below are 5 of my favorite ways to enjoy this fruit, from a gorgeous Tomato Tart to a fresh Tomato Martini made with the strained juice of the fruit to get that oh so good tomato essence! I hope you enjoy these wonderful and easy tomato recipes.
Pasta l'Estate (Summer Pasta)
This isn't just an ordinary tomato-on-pasta dish. The pasta is served piping hot and the sauce chilly cold, creating a temperature contrast that is both refreshing and unexpected.
Fresh Tomato Martini
By using the strained juice of a plump tomato you get the wonderful, tasty essence of the fruit.
