Scott Conant's Stewed Baby Tomatoes

Scott Conant's Stewed Baby Tomatoes

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp garlic, sliced thin
1 quart mixed cherry tomatoes, halved
1 tsp oregano, chopped
1 cup tomato sauce
1 tbsp basil leaves, chiffonade

In a sauté pan, heat oil slightly. Add garlic slices and sauté for 30 seconds. There should be no color on the garlic.

Add cherry tomatoes and oregano to the pan and continue to sauté. Season with a little salt.

Cherry tomatoes will release their juices. Continue cooking until fairly dry.

Add tomato sauce and reduce any residual liquid.

Add basil and mix to incorporate.

The sauce should be chunky, fresh looking, and not too thin.

Adjust seasoning.
