Tiffany, over at Eat at Home, is once again doing her Ingredient Spotlight blog hop. This week? It’s canned tomatoes.
Ideally, I wish every year were like this:
Years when my pantry has row upon row of home canned tomatoes.
Yeah, that was 2008 – decidedly NOT the garden of 2010!
And – because there are years with garden’s like this year’s, store-bought canned tomatoes are a life saver!
As I was going over my posted recipes I realized how few of my recipes that have this wonderful ingredient featured are even posted! (Bad me!) Honestly – I use canned tomatoes a ton! I’m going to have to get my act together and get them typed up and posted!
In lieu of that, here are recipes that use canned tomatoes that I hope you’ll enjoy!
Dina’s World Famous Lasagna
John & Dina’s Chili con Carne
Dina’s Italian Wedding Soup
Taco Soup – okay, this one doesn’t SAY canned tomatoes, but the truth of the matter is that I always throw them in!
Honestly – if there aren’t at least a dozen cans of diced tomatoes on the shelf in the pantry, I get a little worried! They’re indispensible! They are one of the best ways possible to deglaze a pan, leaving an amazing melding of flavors in their wake!
