Linguine with spring tomato sauce.

Spring is here and we are very fortunate to have such a vast selection of fresh fruits and vegetables nicely displayed at our groceries stores that it makes it fun to cook. On my last trip to the grocery store, and that is a daily occurrence, I picked up some wonderfully fragrant tomatoes to make a fresh, and yet, light tomato sauce.

While you can warm up the fresh tomatoes during the cooking process, I decided to cook mine slightly longer and add fresh cherry tomatoes at the last-minute. We enjoyed the consistency and full flavor.

For the fish, we placed a bed of grapefruits on the cookie sheet, small change from the usual lemons  because I have a huge tree in the backyard.

The combination of the flavors between the pasta and the fish, married well.
