From the non-weed part of the garden

What to do with all the tomatoes? Here's my solution:

Saute some chopped garlic in a little olive oil. Add chopped fresh tomatoes straight from the garden--those red baseballs from the supermarket won't work. If you're having company and you want to be fancy, first dip the whole tomatoes in boiling water for a few seconds and then slip the skins off before chopping them.

Cover the tomatoes and simmer them 10 minutes or so until they begin to disintegrate. Mash them a little with a spoon. Then add chopped fresh basil. Serve this sauce over angel hair pasta. I like to top everything with parmesan cheese, but Steve likes it just straight.

I've been deliberately vague about the amounts of each substance, because you really can't go wrong. Just use whatever amount you have handy of each.
