My family likes lasagna, so I usually make it once a week. This variation is one I created to use tomatoes that aren't quite ripe yet. My family and friends love it.

Ingredients

  • 4 large ripe tomatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Dip green tomato slices in flour; brown in skillet on both sides. Remove to paper towels to drain. Spoon 3/4 cup tomato mixture into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Top with a third of the green tomatoes; sprinkle with 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese. Repeat layers twice.

"This is so good. Made it today as a side dish. The tomatoes are from our own garden. Since Green Tomatoes are not available in stores where we live, I can only make this in the summer when we have a garden."

"If you are going to make a comment please read the recipe entirely. There are fried green tomatoes in the dish. I have not made this yet but will this summer when I have lots of both ripe & green tomatoes. Thanks for the idea."
