Wow, were these tomatoes lovely. I really enjoyed them prepared this way. They were quick and easy to make and tasted great. They made a great lunch, garnished with some fresh basil and served with fresh naan bread. Thank you so much for sharing this tasty tasty recipe, which I will make often.

I easily doubled this recipe, because I was making this for four people. I loved this recipe, because it was easy to prepare, although it did make the pan a little sticky.
