This recipe is an easy way to use the abundance of tomatoes and fresh herbs you may have in your garden (or soon may have).  Also, this a a great one that the kiddos can help make.  And because they have helped make them and they do make such a very pretty presentation, they are much more likely to help eat them, too!
