This recipe was inspired by all our fresh garden tomatoes and herbs. In summer, I grill the chicken with some Italian seasonings and a bit of garlic powder, but on rainy days or in winter, I cook it on the stovetop. —Rachel Kowasic, Connellsville, Pennsylvania
This tart is the perfect way to celebrate the bounty of your garden! It's a wonderful meatless dish that highlights fresh summer ingredients. Try it as an appetizer or main dish. You can top the finished dish with additional basil for a pretty presentation. —Bill Gordon, Lexington, Kentucky
"My husband and I have never been fond of tomato soup, but we think this one is out of this world," says Chris Nelson from Alliance, Ohio. "Since a friend gave me the recipe a while back, I've made a batch every week. It's good as an appetizer or paired with a sandwich or salad at lunchtime."
If your family is anything like mine, you may want to make a double batch of these crescents since they disappear so quickly. This is a low-fuss recipe that's high in flavor and is meant to be shared. —Mara Fletcher, Batesville, Indiana
The soup is so scrumptious that it is worth the time it takes to cut up the fresh basil. I believe it is even better the next day, after the flavors have and a chance to blend in the refrigerator overnight.—Tonia Billbe, Elmira, New York
