Uses for Wrinkly Tomatoes?

Posted by gilmoregal (My Page) on

We have a bumper crop of cherry and Roma tomatoes this year, and I have a large bowl of them on the kitchen counter that have started to get wrinkly. Would love any suggestions of how to use them once they are a little past their prime. Thanks!

Make a pasta sauce.

Olive Oil
(Fresh at this time of year)
Basil (both dried and fresh)
Kalamata Olives (optional)
hot red pepper flakes (optional)
Fresh grated Parmesan

Just heat the olive oil, add garlic, tomatoes, dried basil, salt, pepper and hot red pepper flakes (if using).
Add olives (optional)
Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes.

Toss with pasta and fresh basil and serve.

Or make a meat sauce with some ground pork and add the cherry tomatoes.

1 small onion chopped
2 to 3 garlic cloves
