Quick and easy dinner using a variety of fresh tomatoes in whatever size and color winter or summer. You can roast some of the tomatoes canned or fresh for a hearty winter version. There is a good recipe for the canned tomatoes over at the Splendid Table site.
Great for a casual dinner party. Serve with savory polenta or orzo risotto and a salad. —ibbeachnana
