As the garden becomes more abundant in the hot days of July and August, as the tomatoes overwhelm our kitchen, this Easy Fresh Tomato – Pasta Salad is one of my husband’s favorites. When the children were little I used to make this often, as our children like to eat just plain Pasta with Parmesan cheese, and then I would add the other ingredients for Jim and myself.
Our best Springer Spaniel dog you have ever had has been Sassy who we purchased when Joey was four years old. She is kind, patient non-aggressive but at 11 is still somewhat hyperactive. She has never been aggressive towards the children are us. But oddity she has she likening for fresh on the vine tomatoes. She likes to eat strange things even though we do not feed her people food, marshmallows for one. When she was just a young puppy she would go into the garden and take the tomatoes from the vine and eat them in the yard. When we put in our electric fence we had to fence off the garden to keep her from munching on the veggies.
This is one of our standby recipes for a summer side dish. And while Sassy does not get the tomatoes she sits next to us on our beautiful deck while we eat out Fresh Tomato – Pasta Salad
