Sautéed Cherry Tomatoes

We recently took a trip to the apple orchard and I was thrilled to see an abundance of delicious fresh vegetables including these sweet cherry tomatoes! Although I can eat the entire pint raw, I decided to cut them in half and sauté with garlic, basil and balsamic vinegar.  Yum!  This makes a delicious sauce for pasta, or a side dish a protein, even on a veggie or turkey burger!! My kids love garlic and really enjoy this but use less garlic if you’re kids don’t like the strong flavor.

Ingredients:

2 cloves garlic minced

1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil

1 teaspoon olive oil

dash of balsamic vinegar

salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
1) Set a frying pan over medium heat and add the olive oil

2) Add the garlic and sauté for about 1 minute

3) Next add the tomatoes and saute for another 3-4 minutes or until the tomatoes begin to soften

4) Now remove from heat and add in a dash of balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper to taste
