  21. I use tomatoes in macaroni, sort of like cheese, but tomatoes and no milk. My mother did this and now I find myself making it. Very tasty, just cook macaroni, drain, add a can of tomatoes, warm through and enjoy!

  22. I like tomatoes on top of home-made pizza! I still can’t bring myself to eat them plain.

  23. We love tomatoes around here! One of my favorite ways to eat them is on a grilled Margherita pizza – the tomato sauce and the fresh sliced roma tomatoes on top are beyond delicious! marthalynn16 at gmail

  24. Oh, savory! That’s for me! :) What would I use Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes? This is actually same brand I buy for all my cooking with tomatoes, and I would definitelly make a pilaf or my mother’s stuffed peppers (post is hopefully coming this week) :)

  25. My favorite is making my grandmother’s/mom’s/now my version of pasta sauce. Tons of tomatoes, onion, garlic, mushrooms and italian sausage with fresh herbs. It’s just the best!

  35. My favorite way to eat tomatoes is in homemade tomato sauce on pasta.

    My favorite way to eat tomatoes is with some mozzerella cheese, balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

  38. Lynn Spann Bowditch Reply

    The very best way I’ve ever found is a simple marinara sauce with a little fennel seed, or the tomato sauce with onion and butter from blog – mmmmmm. On our locally-made fresh pasta by Terracotta Pasta. mmmmm.
