Most awesome. I ate my portion and wanted everyone else's. This will be a repeater in the summer, when tomatoes aren't so expensive. Great job, Sunny!

This recipe is really easy and delicious. I used olive oil, sliced garlic and then the fresh basil 'paste' you can now find in a tube in the produce department. This is a great recipe for using up extra tomatoes.


Very good! I used my garden fresh basil and tomatoes for this and it was an amazing way to cook cherry tomatoes! I sauteed some fresh garlic first. It's a keeper! Thanks.
