"This recipe will have you singing the praises of green tomatoes. I made it up one year when the weather conspired against my bumper tomato crop and I ended up with tons of green tomatoes and no idea as to what to do with them."

green tomatoes, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
1 (16 ounce) package
tri-colored pasta assortment
crumbled feta cheese
I added 3 cloves of garlic, a chicken buillion cube and pesto, for the finish, sprinkled some grated parmesan cheese. It was so good. I think I would try this adding shrimp and clam sauce in a place of chicken buillon next time.
I served this one night when my mother was over for dinner; actually it was she who found and suggested the recipe. She enjoyed it, but I did not like it at all. I found the tomatoes very sour/bitter. I liked the pasta and cheese part though.
mmmmmm. This was very good. I added garlic with the tomatoes because it seemed like it needed it. I also added a little cajun seasoning for some spunk. I would definately try this. It's a great way to use green tomatoes!
This just "WOWED" my family. I added garlic, thyme, oregano, and basil (all fresh from my garden), but did so delicately. This is a recipe I will use again!
I made this for lunch today, and was pleasantly surprised. Instead of pasta, we served it over rice. I followed the suggestions of others, and added creole seasoning and garlic. Great recipe though. Definitely will make it again :]
This was a unique blend of flavors, and I would probably make it again if I had more green tomatoes I needed to use. For the leftovers, I added some garlic salt, goat cheese, and a dash of balsamic vinegar for a little more flavor. This made a very affordable main dish!
a great recipe to use green tomatoes! Thanks a lot! I would have thrown them away without this great idea!
Thoughts: this is a fast, easy, and surprisingly sophisticated recipe to make on short notice in the summer. I used rotini which is just what I had around. I also ground quite a bit of pepper, to my taste. The kids gobbled it up and I didn't bother with garlic, chicken broth, etc. I like all of those flavors but this recipe seems to work well if you keep it simple. So that is my tip--don't over think it, and let the tomatoes and cheese take center stage.
