      This is a real treat. I really thought that 2 lbs of tomato's was going to be way too much, it's not. The use of fresh tomato's was wonderful and you can bet I'll be using this recipe this summer when they are really good. The seasoning is excellent not too heavy or light. Even DH liked it~! ellie, for that alone I bow to you. I only wish that I had the time to do photo's as this is a very good looking plate. I have this saved to my Keepers cookbook.
