"We LOVED this recipe! I used several varieties of heirloom tomatoes, garlic chives, and English thyme that I'd just picked. The tomatoes were a mix of larger varieties as well as cherry. Cut into pieces, they worked well."

"This was good but if your not into the spices you won`t like this. The spice over powered the tomatos. Cut back on the chives and the parsley."
