I have lovely tiny tomato plants on my balcony and try to find fresh ways to use them. I sometimes cut them in half in blending into a salad pasta dish or i used them whole with fresh basil and olive oil and selection of cheese like mozerella provolone or some great smoked gouda. Delicious.. and filling!
