I made this recipe for my Mom and husband - everyone loved it! I'll be making it again very soon.
This was not as good as it looked in the magazine. The tomatoes did not cook through. I also added parmesean cheese to the meat, but probably should have added garlic too. I would make again, but cook it a little longer. Recipe made more than 4 servings, maybe because my cherry tomatoes were larger.
