Sautéed Cherry Tomatoes with Shallots

Sautéed Cherry Tomatoes with Shallots

Heat brings out the inherent sweetness of the tomatoes, while shallots give them a soft garlic-onion bite. Once the tomatoes pop, they're ready to serve. The ripeness of the tomatoes will determine how long they need to cook; the riper the tomatoes, the less time they'll need to pop. Grape tomatoes also work well in this recipe.
