Sweet cherry tomato sauce

October 11, 2014

Author Notes: We like to grow tomatoes in our backyard and every year we end up with a lot cherry tomatoes that tend to ripen before we can eat them all. You can throw any type of tomato into this dish, but we find homegrown or organic cherry is best because of it's naturally sweet flavors. Ross Murphy
