Tomato Basil Quick Bread

Who’s excited for Fall?  I am, especially now that I have this delicious recipe.  The bread is very easy to make, and includes a perfect mix of flavors.  The tomatoes provide enough moisture to keep the bread perfect with every bite.  It would be a wonderful compliment to any cozy soup recipe, or slathered with butter of course.  Who wants a slice of some Tomato Basil Quick Bread?

I was asked to review Dei Fratelli (which means “Of the brothers,”) tomato products.  Dei Fratelli is four generations of the Hirzel family who have been growing and canning the perfect product just for you.  Since I adore tomatoes in just about anything, except my cereal of course- I was excited to share.  The tomatoes are well balanced, and provide the perfect amount of flavor.  My husband and I use canned tomatoes in just about every soup or pasta recipe, even in barbecue sauce!  So I look forward to using more of their products in the future!
