i still have seeds left for this years garden. thanks again.
They are not good for the sugo you know. For the sugo you need another kind that we use for the "conserva". It's more big and long.
Anyway, you can use the little ones for salad with oil of olive, basil, salt and origan or for another kind of sugo that is more light. You put some garlic with oil then you add the tomatoes just for a little time, salt and basil.
It's very fresh and it's very used during summer in southern Italy.
I'm happy you have a son now and I'm sure he will be a chef!
