  1. Heat 1 Tb. olive oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high flame until it just starts to smoke. Add tomatoes, and season with salt and pepper. Saute, shaking pan frequently, until tomatoes soften and skins just begin to wrinkle, about 2 minutes. Stir in the garlic and continue to shake the pan until garlic is fragrant. Off heat, stir in the basil and remaining 1 Tb. olive oil, then serve.

These are good- I really enjoyed the flavor sauteeing brought to the tomatoes. I used on-the-vine cherry tomatoes. Just make sure your tomatoes are completely dry before adding to the pan- I g...

Quick, fresh and delicious! I used a bag of grape tomatoes, garlic and fresh minced basil. I added Hawaiian sea salt and fresh ground black pepper while the tomatoes were sauteeing, shaking the ...

So good and so quick! Followed the recipe to a T, I don't think there's a need to add or skip anything. Make sure to use fresh basil!

I loved this! The skins were a little bit annoying, but the flavor is just so delicious! I let is sit for a while to cool down, and had it on top of a toasted English muffin. Would be great topp...
