Garlic & Herb Tomatoes

Garlic & Herb Tomatoes © 2008 

3 Tablespoons olive oil

2 teaspoons minced garlic (2 cloves)

2 pints cherry tomatoes or grape tomatoes

2 Tablespoons chopped, fresh parsley

2 Tablespoons chopped, fresh basil

2 Teaspoons chopped, fresh thyme leaves

1 teaspoon kosher salt I used 2 teaspoons sea salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper I left this out for the kids

Heat the olive oil in a saute pan large enough to hold all the tomatoes in one layer. Add the garlic to the oil and cook over medium heat for 30 seconds. Add the tomatoes, basil, parsley, thyme, salt, and pepper. Reduce the heat to low and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, tossing occasionally, until the tomatoes begin to loose their firm round shape. Sprinkle with a little fresh chopped basil and parsley and serve hot or at room temperature.
