When In Roma Do As The Roma Tomatoes Do!

Escalloped Tomatoes

How often have you had pizza and then think, “I should really be having a good meal!” I’m sure we’ve all felt a little guilty about not putting time into a meal, wondering about the nutrition of our offering to the family table, wasting money on something frivolous….That’s all HOGWASH!! Regardless of what the Food Nazis think or disseminate with their less than truthful analysis’s of various foods, Pizza is OK to eat and has tons of good stuff in it….like Vitamin C and Lycopene and Calcium just to mention a few. BUT, if you are really depressed by the Food Cops…try this…

Here’s a recipe that will satisfy that craving for a pizza and still allow for an accompaniment that can satisfy the Food Nazis ☺ This goes well with any Chicken dish, works well with Pot Roast, does excellent with fish….go ahead and use your imagination….I’m positive you’ll come up with a new favorite family meal!

2 Cups cubed French bread

16 Roma tomatoes

1 T. sugar

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. pepper

1/4 C. olive oil

2 T. fresh basil
