This recipe will have you singing the praises of green tomatoes. I made it up one year when the weather conspired against my bumper tomato crop and I ended up with tons of green tomatoes and no idea as to what to do with them.

I added 3 cloves of garlic a chicken buillion cube and pesto for the finish sprinkled some grated parmesan cheese. It was so good. I think I would try this adding shrimp and clam sauce in a place of chicken buillon next time. Read More

I served this one night when my mother was over for dinner; actually it was she who found and suggested the recipe. She enjoyed it but I did not like it at all. I found the tomatoes very sour/bitter. I liked the pasta and cheese part though. Read More

mmmmmm. This was very good. I added garlic with the tomatoes because it seemed like it needed it. I also added a little cajun seasoning for some spunk. I would definately try this. It's a great way to use green tomatoes! Read More

This just "WOWED" my family. I added garlic thyme oregano and basil (all fresh from my garden) but did so delicately. This is a recipe I will use again! Read More

I made this for lunch today and was pleasantly surprised. Instead of pasta we served it over rice. I followed the suggestions of others and added creole seasoning and garlic. Great recipe though. Definitely will make it again: Read More

This was a unique blend of flavors and I would probably make it again if I had more green tomatoes I needed to use. For the leftovers I added some garlic salt goat cheese and a dash of balsamic vinegar for a little more flavor. This made a very affordable main dish! Read More

Thoughts: this is a fast easy and surprisingly sophisticated recipe to make on short notice in the summer. I used rotini which is just what I had around. I also ground quite a bit of pepper to my taste. The kids gobbled it up and I didn't bother with garlic chicken broth etc. I like all of those flavors but this recipe seems to work well if you keep it simple. So that is my tip--don't over think it and let the tomatoes and cheese take center stage. Read More

I have a lot of green tomatoes and had a package of feta wasting away in my fridge so this recipe was the perfect solution! A really neat way to use up green tomatoes too. I used half a stick of butter instead of olive oil added 2 cloves minced garlic and my feta was sundried tomato basil flavor. We were quite curious about how the recipe would turn out and it ended up being great! Next time I'm going to cut back on the cheese or else just sprinkle with a little grated parmesan because as good as the dish was the feta flavor dominated over the tomato flavor. We liked it enough though that I plan to just cook some noodles and toss in a bit of butter and feta if I need a quick easy dinner sometime in the future. Read More
