Tomato Pasta

    4 – 6 medium sized tomatoes, chopped
    5 tablespoons olive oil
    2 teaspoons lemon juice
    1/3 cup chopped fresh basil
    Seasoning to taste
    1 lb spaghetti
    ½ cup parmesan cheese


      Prepare tomatoes and add olive oil, lemon juice, basil and seasoning.  Mix gently together.

      Bring a large pan of water to the boil and add the spaghetti – cook according to the instructions on packaging.

      Drain the spaghetti and immediately toss with the tomato mixture.  Serve at once sprinkled with cheese.



Creamy Tomato Soup

    1 ½ pounds of tomatoes – skinned and roughly chopped
    1 onion – peeled and finely chopped
    1 clove of garlic – crushed
    2 ounces melted butter
    1 ½ pints of stock
    (beef or chicken is nice but I have used vegetable stock cubes)
    Baking soda
    Seasoning
    A little castor sugar
    ¼ pint double cream

 

      Melt the butter in a heavy based pan and frey onions and garlic until just soft.  Add ½ pint stock together with chopped tomatoes and a pinch of baking soda.  Bring to boiler, lower heat, cover and simmer for 15 mins.

      Allow to cool slightly before liquidising.  Return to the pan through a sieve.

      Reheat, add more stock until you reach the desired consistency.  Season to taste.  In a separate pan bring cream almost to the boil then add soup.  Serve sprinkled with fresh basil.

 

Tomato Sandwiches

    1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice
    ½ teaspoon of grated lemon zest
    1/3 cup of mayonnaise
    1 lb loaf of French bread
    3 large tomatoes, thickly sliced

     

      In a small bowl combine the lemon zest and juice, mayonnaise and seasoning.  Stir well.

      Cut 8  (½” thick) slices of French bread from centre of loaf.  Toast lightly.   Spread with the mayonnaise mixture.

      Put tomato slices on 4 slices of bread then top with the other 4 slices (mayonnaise side down).

      Delicious served at lunch time with a few chips or crisps.
