"We love this! I've used cored, chopped tomatoes instead of cherry tomatoes. It is funnier, but tastes fabulous with garden tomatoes."

"I made this as a side dish for chicken cordon bleu. I love tomatoes and this tasted divine. "sigh" I broiled some bread and put this on top. O my goodness, best thing ever! Who cares about the chicken :)"

"This recipe is so good! My husband and I both love it and we have not only used it as a side dish, but we have tossed it over pasta and eaten it as a main dish."
