Bruschetta Pasta

Bruschetta Pasta

Fruit or vegetable?

As a child, I remember going into our family garden, picking the biggest, reddest tomato I could find, wiping any dirt off on my shorts and biting into this sun-kissed delight. The juice dripped down my chin and I relished every bite. It was my favorite then and that hasn’t changed. We often have meals of sliced tomatoes and sweet corn, and I can’t wait for both to be in season again.

Tomatoes come in so many varieties and colors. Large pink beefsteaks to red, orange and yellow cherry and grape tomatoes, and multi-colored heirlooms, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. August gardens have an abundance of this juicy delight and the recipes this month will help you enjoy them even more.
