As much as you hate to admit it, you need to give raw tomatoes a rest. You know that you’ll be pining for them come winter, but right now, you’ve exhausted all the possibilities. You've had your fill of raw tomatoes in salads, on BLTs, in gazpacho, and on bruschetta, and now you're ready for something new.
As the days begin to shorten and the streets start to cool off, cooking over a flame doesn’t seem so bad anymore. Now that you can actually imagine yourself dumping a steaming hot pot of water into a colander, your tomatoes are destined for pasta: Use them to make a creamy sauce, to lightly coat long noodles, or to mingle with pancetta and other fresh vegetables.
