You can get a various types of tomatoes at markets or in shops. They have a wonderful taste, shaped by the sun, and they occur in different sizes and shapes, depending on their type.

Raspberry tomatoes are irreplaceable for me in sandwiches. When I make salads, I go for cherry tomatoes.

I also like cocktail tomatoes – I used them recently for the preparation of the pasta in this recipe. It so happened that the tomatoes were of different sizes, smaller and larger. I cut the larger ones into quarters, and threw in the smaller ones whole.

I also added fresh peas to the cherry tomato-based sauce. It made the sauce not only creamy but you could also feel the crunchy grains of green peas in it.
