Summer Tomatoes

I know it’s not Monday, my day to share recipes, but I was wondering if you have an overflow of tomatoes at your house? What do you do with them? We have been blessed to have a supply of tomatoes given to us by gardeners in our church. Oh, how we love them! I love them in salads, or on a piece of bread with a little mayo (my sister thinks this is strange! Does anyone else love tomato sandwiches?). We also love Tomato Pie .

This week I tried another recipe using fresh tomatoes and basil and we really loved it. it’s called Tomato, Basil and Parmesan Flatbread from Cooking Light. We had tried a chicken flatbread at Olive Garden and loved it, so I knew I had to try to this recipe.

First you make up the flatbread recipe, then you roll the dough into four pieces and layer it with yellow and red tomatoes. It goes into the oven for 13 minutes.

Meanwhile you mix up the basil, garlic and Parmesan mixture to put over the tomatoes…

Pop it back into the oven ’til the Parmesan cheese melts.

This makes a great appetizer. You could add chopped chicken to it to make it a little more hearty. If you have tomatoes lying around that you don’t know what to do with, try this!
So, what else do you do with your summer tomatoes?

Thanking the Lord for the bounty,
