My Italian Garden by Viana La Place
Posted By Nava On August 23, 2008 @ 11:16 am In Book Reviews | No Comments
Now that I have a garden, though its theme is more overgrown than Italian, I’m finding a lot of inspiration from a wonderful cookbook titledMy Italian Garden  by Viana La Place. It’s filled with simple, fresh vegetable recipes, most of which are vegetarian, and many of which are vegan or can be made so with minor adjustments.
My local CSA farm is bursting with the sweet-as-sugar Sungold tomatoes, so the time is ripe, so to speak, for this delectable little dish. I loved it as is from the book’s recipe, below, but I’m also going to try a raw version tonight, minus the garlic. I can’t wait to try her simple pizza dough recipe, and pile it high with tomatoes and basil from the garden!
This simple recipe is a wonderful addition to add to your repertoire of summer vegetable dishes. The sweet tomatoes and pungent flavor of the olives, both oil-cured black and brined green olives, wake up any appetite. From My Italian Garden  by Viana La Place.
4 to 6 servings
Place the olive oil in a medium sauté pan over low heat. Add the garlic and parsley and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until fragrant and glossy.
Add the tomatoes and stir 2 to 3 minutes until the tomatoes are glossy and the parsley is evenly distributed.
Stir in the olives and season with a little salt if needed. Stir gently with a wooden spoon until the tomatoes are warm through but intact. Serve warm or at room temperature.
