Over the past several years I have had the opportunity to talk to many audiences. I usually follow my presentation on food, health, and sustainable food systems with a cooking demonstration. When the 45 minutes or an hour is over, someone often says "the only thing I am going to remember is the cherry tomato trick."
Oh well. At least it is a really good and functional trick. It will help making preparation of this pasta sauce quick and easy. Cherry tomatoes are just coming in to many farmers markets and asparagus is still there. This pasta marks the transition of spring into real summer.
