I do feel truly blessed that my garden is overflowing with tomatoes right now and the late blight
hasn’t wiped out my plants. We’ve definitely got an abundance at the moment, and I always enjoy giving them to friends who don’t grow tomatoes. It makes them happy.
Still, I keep plenty for us to eat, and I’m always searching for new ways to use them up. Here are five recipes that go beyond pasta sauce and BLT’s (not that there’s anything wrong with them) to help you use up the abundance in your back yard.
Broiled Tomato-Pesto Sandwiches
– This is another Eating Well recipe. I’ll definitely be trying this because I’ve got plenty of leftover pesto from yesterday’s vegetarian sandwich I made. This simple sandwich uses fresh tomatoes and pesto – yum.
