Recipes that Say Hurray for Heirloom Tomatoes!

There’s no doubt about it: tomatoes are one of the best things about summer. Once those vine-ripened beauties start appearing, my brain goes into overdrive coming up with ways to use them before the season ends. Roasted and topped on salads, sautéed with garlic and served with pasta, or sliced thick and added to sandwiches — my mouth is watering just thinking about it!   In fact, my summer tomato love has led me to “put up” 40 pounds of heirloom paste tomatoes this year.  Even if you’re not a canner, you can still enjoy juicy, flavorful summertime tomatoes in these recipes. But you better eat up because the heirloom season doesn’t last long!   3015_heirloom_tomato_pesto_pizzas-300x189_1.jpg 3299_heirloom_tomato_salad-300x189_2.jpg
