This is a winner! Dinner was delicious tonight. I didn't have cherry tomatoes, so I subbed a 14 oz. can of petite diced tomatoes, with a healthy splash of white wine. I decreased the onion and garlic slightly (my can of tomatoes was flavored with garlic & onions). Served with a vegetable side and crunchy bread. Everyone at the table gobbled this up - perfect amount to serve 4 of us. Thanks Marie!
