Bang in season are tomatoes and courgettes and don’t they make such a lovely pair. Here is used the tomatoes 3 ways: oven-roasted, oven-dried and fresh.
As I just returned from a great mini-holiday in Provence, I used a ton of the Provence herb which is a mixture of thyme and rosemary.
Sunshine on a plate!
