    Great way to use up a bumper crop of cherry tomatoes over the summer. It's best eaten fresh from the stove than leftovers.

    Delicious! I used the tiny balls of fresh mozzarella for convenience and presentation. Loved it!

    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 :)
