Tomatoes are a great asset to your cooking as they make the basis of so many great sauces and salsas.

Tomatoes are great fresh, but their flavor is enhanced when roasted. Toss them with some pasta and some basil pesto, and they rock!

    I am in hot pursuit of fabulous grilling recipes for this summer, now that I have a giant garden of my own! When I saw this recipe, I knew it was a keeper and can’t wait to make it with my own ‘maters.

  2. Looks delicious! Especially that big olive in the picture!

  3. I am loving that tomatoes are starting to taste like tomatoes, especially at the little farmer’s market place I’ve been frequenting. 🙂

  4. Sorry, my link doesn’t have tomatoes in it this week. 🙁 However, I can’t WAIT for my tomatoes to come in an make lots of nummy things! I just made a zucchini tomato topping for ravioli yesterday that was fantastic! Thanks!

      That’s okay. We’ll let you slide this time. 😉

  5. Oh, wow! That looks scrumptious!

  6. Oh, that pasta salad looks wonderful! I can imagine the taste of it – so fully flavored. I’ll be trying this!

  7. I can’t wait for heirloom tomatoes from our CSA . . . and I’ve been thinking about planting some in containers. Yum!

    I am dreaming of fresh off the vie Summer tomatoes. Yum, yum , yum!

  9. Yummo!!!

  10. Looks like a great dish to take to a potluck!

  11. That pasta salad looks perfect for the holiday grilling weekend.

    Tomatoes no longer taste like tomatoes where I’m at. So, when I make salsa for my tacos I add a bit of honey.

  12. I’ve missed participating in the URS! The pasta salad look delish!

      Welcome back! Missed seeing you.

  13. The tomato plants can’t grow fast enough around here. Literally.

    They are, however, growing faster than the basil. As long as we have both, my husband told a guest yesterday, than we’re good!

    I am so happy I found you again! I loved your bag tag idea, and vowed to do it, but I lost the link. Luckily I found it again through org junkie.
    I am now adding you to my blog roll to take advantage of all of your good ideas!
    Thanks for helping my summer be a little more organized. What a great idea!
