I also just saute some sliced Zucchini with a little olive oil and garlic- till crispy- that's the sauce I put on top of Raviolli in the summer!

and I have a stuffed zucchini recipe that I have to dig out to get it right- it's yummy tomatoes used and cheese- breadcrumbs but I'll try to find the "official" recipe.

slice tomatoes, put a slice of fresh motzarella on top of the tomato, tear a piece of fresh basil and lay on motzarella and then drizzle balsamic vinegar on top. VERY YUMMY and different.

Make past sauce and store it for the winter.

I make past sauce in one large batch when most tomatoes ripen.

Saute in olive oil your choice of:

garlic, shallots, onion
fresh peppers, mushrooms, olives, hot peppers, shredded carrots, spinach combination's are endless
Add fresh basil, oregano, pepper, salt, red wine

peel tomatoes and cook down to desired consistency

I make my recipes from memory but honestly any good pasta sauce recipe will do and when done and cooled bag it I double bag so no frostbite and I have fresh homemade past sauce straight through about february usually.I dont add meat because i think it shouldn't be frozen for along time.

Good luck

We slice tomatoes, spread some salad dressing on top (caeser or Italian) and top with crumbled feta cheese. Bake at 350 until the cheese starts to melt.

Or, you can broil them.

Oh yummy! That sounds so good. When I was a kid (like 12) I used to take mushrooms and stuff them with feta and stick them in the oven for lunch! (this was the 70's and it used to drive my mom nuts) But I loved them that way! I may have to try that again!

We love fresh tomato sandwiches. Toast the bread, slather on butter and mayo, put sliced tomatoes on, add salt and pepper. Delicious!!

I bet this is going to be the stupidest question ever, but exactly how do you sun-dry tomatoes. I love the ones you buy in the stores.

I remember my mother drying apples when I was a kid, but I've never known anyone who did tomatoes.

Our biggest thing this year has been homemade pizza. I buy the Pillsbury crusts. I just like sliced tomato, garlic and cheeses on my side, but DH puts other things on the rest for the boys. We don't use any tomato sauce at all, but they are SO good.
