Serving Suggestion

Enjoy this pasta dish with a serving of your favorite hot steamed vegetable.

Purchasing Fresh Tomatoes

Ripe tomatoes should be firm and free of any soft spots, bruises or signs of mold. They should have bright shiny skins, feel heavy for their size and boast a lovely fresh tomato fragrance.

Storing Tomatoes

Vine-ripened tomatoes are very perishable. And since they tend to lose flavor when stored in the refrigerator, store them stem-sides down, at room temperature away from direct sunlight and use within a few days after purchase.

    I was surprised that more people hadn't reviewed this recipe. I cut it out of Food and Family years ago and never made it. My boyfriend wanted to try eating less meat, so I decided to make it. It was great. I ran out of red wine vinegar, so I used balsamic and it was fine. I may make it again with the 1/3 less fat cream cheese. If you want to add some meat, I think i would be good with some bacon, proscuitto, chicken breast, or even shrimp. My boyfriend and cousin both really liked it.

    Great and easy summer side dish. Especially with fresh from the garden tomatoes and basil.
