I love how fruits and vegetables just grow into all kinds of shapes. This tomato depending on which way you turn it has many possibilities.

Like life. It all depends on how you look at things.

What if company drops in and it’s time for dinner?
Here is a very and quick tasty dish
Simple pasta recipe with garden fresh tomato and basil

You can adapt this. I made it up so make it yours.
Take a pound of pennette rigate cook till al dente. Or any pasta you like.
Drain and rinse
Add 1/3 cup olive oil
Fresh garlic minced to taste
Large garden fresh tomato diced to bite-size or handful of cherry tomatoes
Add 1/2 cup fresh basil tear into bite-size pieces
If you like Sicilian olives add a few either pre- pitted or tear off pits and add in.
Toss.
Have locatelli cheese ready on the side.
Serve with warm bread.
Wine of your choice
Or water with lime and fresh mint
Iceberg lettuce wedges drizzled with balsamic vinegar

Enjoy!
