My husband plants the garden and I harvest and cook the fruits of his labor. My favorite way to use plum tomatoes is this easy Margherita Pita Pizza. It is so good! —Rosemarie Weleski, Natrona Heights, Pennsylvania
With the delectable combination of basil, tomatoes and mozzarella, this warm pasta medley makes a wonderful meatless side or main course. From Avon Lake, Ohio, Sandy Jenkins writes, “Everyone in our family loves this recipe, and it’s such a great way to use fresh tomatoes from your garden.”
When I'm in the mood for Chinese food, I turn to this snappy recipe. The colorful nutty dish is sure to stir your creativity...substitute broccoli for the asparagus or add carrots and mushrooms.

Our Test Kitchen stuffed these yummy Vegetarian Tacos with a blend of sauteed cabbage, peppers and black beans so flavorful and filling you won’t even miss the meat! Let the kids top their own with avocado (aguacate), cheese (queso)—or a dollop of sour cream (crema agria). (And if they’re taking Spanish in school, you might even let the them print out a Spanish label for each garnish.)
"When my husband needed to go on a heart-smart diet, I had to come up with new ways to get more vegetables into our daily menus. This meatless spaghetti sauce is a winner and especially delicious with spinach fettuccine!"—Marianne Neuman of East Troy, Wisconsin
My parents went on vacation last year just as their tomato crop - and mine - was ready to harvest. After freezing as many tomatoes as I could possibly want or use, I had to come up with new ideas for using tomatoes. My husband loved this creation! It really is a great way to use tomatoes.
