Early Girl Tomato Jam

This is another recipe from the Blue Chair Jam Cookbook. It is amazing served with a nice soft cheese. I also love to use it with meatloaf.

I think this would be an amazing hostess gift. It is definitely not something most kitchens have in their pantry.

Here is the recipe below.

Roasted Tomato, Garlic Confit, Buffalo Mozzarella and Basil Pasta

I was searching the fridge this afternoon hoping for an inspiration for dinner. I found last week’s roasted tomatoes along with last month’s garlic confit. I had some Buffalo Mozzarella as well as some fresh basil in the garden. This is a new take on Pasta alla checca.

This recipe is a perfect example of what you can do if you have some great prepared ingredients on hand.

I used the tomato/olive oil from the roasted tomatoes in lieu of regular olive oil.

Just cook some penne and toss the sauce with the drained warm pasta.

Dinner is served.
