There is nothing more amazing than the phenomenal tomatoes that are available here in the summer and early fall season. I love the vibrancy of flavors that fresh tomatoes bring to any dish and adding tons of garlic and basil makes them even more marvelous.
Here is my friend Maria Paniccia’s outstanding yet simple stuffed tomato rice recipe. Her husband Peter grows some of the best tomatoes in New York and he spoils me silly with them every year.
This dish does really well with a little cayenne pepper sprinkled on top!
