I Love Tomatoes!


Tomatoes seriously have to be my favorite vegetable (or one of my favorite fruits if you are going to be technical).

I had some grape tomatoes that I had gotten to pop into salads, but I bought way too many, and some of them were getting past their prime. So I found this lovely recipe to use them up. It was really good...though my son didn't like the smell of the Balsamic vinegar and he kept holding his nose and saying, "Stinky!" Ha ha!

So, if you need to (because you are like my son), hold your nose and eat these anyway! Besides, I thought they smelled good!

Sauteed Grape Tomatoes


1 pt. grape tomatoes, halved
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil


Saute tomatoes and next 3 ingredients in hot oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes, or until thoroughly heated. Remove from heat, and stir in basil.

Notes: I thought this was so good. I did add a touch of salt and pepper on top when I served it as well. This would also be so good tossed with your favorite kind of pasta. It makes a lot of yummy sauce that would be great with pasta.

  1. I wonder if you could freeze it after this for use in pasta. What do you think?
