Make Your Own Tomato Paste - Estratto

Can you stand another tomato recipe?  I've been cooking a lot with tomatoes lately, but hey - everyone's got an excess of tomatoes right now.  Some friends dropped off some of their tomato excess the other night to us (thanks, Brian and Diane!) and that was fine with me.  What was I going to do with that many tomatoes?  I was going to make my own tomato paste.

My New Favorite Dish - Spaghetti with Roasted Tomatoes, Garlic, Pancetta

This is my new favorite dish.  It has to be, because I've made it every single week since I saw the recipe.

It's a luscious dish of pasta topped with tomatoes which are roasted with bread crumbs and stuffed with slivers of garlic.  Fresh herbs and crispy bits of pancetta top it off.  The flavors are perfect together.  To eat the dish, you just crush your tomato on top of your pasta and it makes this incredible sauce.

Welcome to My New Home  


Welcome to my new home on the web.  Come on in and have a look around!  This has been quite a learning experience, designing this site and getting it up and running. Jumping over from my old home at Blogger was a little bit scary, but thanks to the brilliant people at Squarespace, it has been a lot of fun.  If you're a blogger and you don't know about Squarespace, you might want to check them out.  It's a blogging/web site platform that is incredibly customizable and will also host your site.  It's amazing the control you have over your design, without having to know HTML or CSS coding, or depending on a designer for every little change.   And, besides, they're just so darn nice! 

So browse around and let me know what you think!

Note: If you have this site bookmarked, please remember to update it.  If you are subscribed, you don't need to do a thing.  

I have a lot of delicious recipes coming up, so let's get cooking!
