Week 3 : #TomatoTomahto

It’s that time of year … Tomato Time!  With gardens about to overflow with every type of tomato you can think of… I thought it would be the perfect time to round up some of my favorite ways to incorporate tomatoes into your weekly meal plan. I mean let’s face it, I’ve never met a tomato I didn’t like!

 So whether you say “tomato” or “tomahto” here are a few faves of mine.


 Summer Stuffed Portobellos

The perfect addition to your #meatfreemonday is this garden fresh summer stuffed portobello mushroom cap.


Bucatini with Fresh Pomodoro Sauce

This pomodoro sauce takes the flavors of my favorite San marzano sauce to the next level by incorporating a pound of fresh tomatoes with a touch of cream.  Perfect for summer when tomatoes and basil are at the peak.

An all time favorite here in our house! Give this dish some a summer makeover by swapping in some fresh tomatoes instead of canned peeled tomatoes.
