Love Apple Linguine (Sexy Fried Green Tomatoes)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Carianne

This came to me in a book called "Romancing the Stove--Celebrated Recipes and Delicious Fun for Every Kitchen Goddess," a very lovely gift from a friend. I have not yet prepared it (placing it here for safe-keeping until I can get my hands on some really fine organic tomatoes), but I cannot wait to!

This had a very sophisticated taste to it. The tomatoes were not too sour and the spice mixture was perfect. I used the flour mixture to also coat some chicken breasts and then baked both the tomatoes and chicken for half an hour at 425 to avoid frying. I also added a little parmesan cheese to the sauce and topped with black olives. Will absolutely make again.
