This is a summertime favorite. When you have good, fresh tomatoes, it's excellent. If tomatoes aren't in season, don't bother. The lime juice and zest really enhances the fresh ingredients. If you don't need it to be vegan, it's great with a little shredded parmesan or asiago on top.

This has to be my latest favorite. I did it with thin rice noodles instead of farfalla. This dish definately rates 4 stars.

I made this dish when it was published in the July 2008 issue - so easy and awesome tasting!

This was excellent - used corn I'd frozen from last year's crop and a combination of grape and heirloom tomatoes. I felt it needed a little salt and fresh ground pepper, but otherwise make it as written!
