Too many cherry tomatoes….

Too many tomatoes!

Too many tomatoes!

I planted 3 Sweet 1000 cherry tomato plants. So I have tons of wonderful sweet cherry tomatoes. The solution to that is fresh Checca Sauce. This recipe is adapted from Giada DeLaurentis – Everyday Italian Cookbook. It uses a lot of cherry tomatoes and it is fresh and delicious.

Here is the recipe:

12 oz. of cherry tomatoes halved (I used more like a pound)
3 Scallions (white and pale green parts only) coarsely chopped
3 garlic cloves
1 oz. of Parmesan cheese coarsely chopped
8 fresh basil leaves-torn
3 T olive oil
4 oz fresh mozzarella cut into 1/2″ cubes

1/2 tsp salt and freshly ground pepper

1 lb angel hair pasta

In a food processor, pulse first 6 ingredients, just until tomatoes are coarsely chopped – do not purée them. Transfer to a bowl and add mozzarella cheese and salt and pepper. Toss the sauce with cooked pasta immediately.




Be Kind….
