Entry 22: Growing Something Delicious
Another big harvest this weekend. There was more cherry tomatoes, a handful of red onions and a few large tomatoes. In Pic 1, there is a green tomato. I think it’s suppose to be a red tomato but it fell off the plant before it ripen. I’ve heard that sometimes the tomato can change colour even off the plant. So with this new harvest I decided to make some stuffed pasta shells.
At first the filling was a little more sour than I was hoping it would be. Cherry tomatoes and the one yellow tomato made for a sour sauce but with a little salt, pepper, sugar, basil, tarragon, ground beef, mushrooms, red onion and garlic, I’d say it turned out alright (Pic 2). The finished product is in Pic 3. Some stuffed shells with the filling, light ricotta cheese and topped with mozzarella cheese. The tastes all balanced out. Another successful dish made with home grown veggies.
