This sauce is delicious! I used grape tomatoes on the vine, jarred minced garlic, dried parsley, and one packet of Truvia sugar substitute. Love garlic so added a bit more and used the juice of one small lemon. The tomatoes were sweet and the lemon juice brightened the flavors and blended them together. Couldnt stop tasting so I could review the recipe! :) This will definitely be made again. Made and reviewed for the Game Forums Went to the Market Tag Game.
