"Surprisingly Simple. I had to make do with what was in my cabinet at the time, so the only thing fresh I had was the tomatoes from the garden(cherry). And it was perfect, even my picky kids loved this dish."

"Family loved it! I didn't peel or seed the tomatoes and it was great, the tomatoes juices created a nice sauce! May try to add kale or spinach next time!"
