Fresh tomatoes for a pasta sauce for the time when we have all that variety in the garden(or in your local grocery store). Add visual punch by using as many tomato varieties and colors as you can find. Simply toss them in a pan with some herbs and a splash of white wine to create your own fresh sauce.
