"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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!
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.
a great recipe to use green tomatoes! Thanks a lot! I would have thrown them away without this great idea!
