Did you know you can use canned tomatoes in appetizer and salad recipes as well as main dishes and of course pastas? Well, you can! 

The benefits of using canned tomatoes are: juicer tomatoes, healthier-picked and canned at peak of ripeness, already peeled and diced and less expensive that tomatoes in the produces dept, plus you can store them in you cupboard for anytime you need tomatoes.

Cooking Hint:
To toast pecans, bake uncovered in ungreased shallow pan in 350o oven for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.  Another option is to toast them in the microwave.  Place a single layer on a microwave safe plate and cook on high for 2 minutes.  Stir and cook for 1 more minute.
