Heirloom Tomato Sauce with Heirloom Tomato Slices and Swiss Cheese Mini Sandwiches

Summer is here and we are very excited! I love summer because our local Whole Foods has a lot of produce from local farmers.

Since heirloom tomatoes were on sale, I picked up a bunch. But, then, within a few days they started getting overripe! So, I thought quickly and made tomato sauce!

You can find the tomato sauce recipe at Disney Junior’s That’s Fresh. Here’s the recipe: http://a.dolimg.com/en-US/disneyjunior/media/nightlight/thatsfresh/recipes/pdfs/ThatsFresh_Tomato.pdf

I substituted heirloom tomatoes for plum tomatoes. We loved it.
