I usually use Dijon, or sometimes a good grainy Cajun mustard.

Yes, the balsamic vinegar, honey and mustard are added after the tomatoes are softened. I have corrected the recipe. Thanks for catching the error.

" 2. Heat the oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Mince garlic and sauté 1 minute.

Where do the listed ingredients, balsamic vinegar, Honey, mustard, salt, and ground black pepper come in? They're not listed in the steps. Are we to assume that they should be stirred into the softened tomatoes/sauteed garlic mixture to complete the sauce?
