We are cooking up a savory masterpiece with Amanda from High Heels to Hot Wheels today…
Shrimp & Tomato Pasta looks just mouth-watering!
I’m SO jealous that Amanda is cooking out of her garden already!! I’m getting ours planted today… can’t wait to create all kinds of garden fresh recipes this summer 🙂
I’ll turn it on over to Amanda….
Hey guys at What’s Cooking with Ruthie! It’s Amanda from High Heels to Hot Wheels. Thank you for having me back again this month and THANK GOODNESS for all the fresh foods that are starting to grace our dinner tables!!!
We have been busy this last month planting herbs in the ground, in containers and even in pots indoors. The herbs are everywhere ready for any meal. We have four tomato plants in the garden and a cute little “patio” tomato plant, so I have doubt tomatoes will abound if we can keep the “cute, little” rabbits away that we have seen take up residence in our yard. Of all the tomato plants that we are waiting on, I am most anticipating our Cherokee Purple tomatoes. They are so meaty and delicious and perfect for a substantial ingredient on a sandwich or in a pasta like this dish. Of course, any large summer tomato will do, but if you can get our hands on a Cherokee Purple you will delight in its goodness!

- 2-3 garlic cloves, minced
