This is one of my favorite recipes for summer. This recipe is from Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook, from 40 years ago. I am posting the original recipe, which calls for canned tomatoes. If you want to use fresh, you'll have to figure it out for yourself. I never knew how many I would use, since garden tomatoes vary in size. I also made half of the recipe, since only us two grownups wanted to eat it.
