Some more of my favorite recipes!

I wanted to post this ASAP as tomato season is almost over and this is too good to miss. I made it with baby San Marzano tomatoes I found at Trader Joes. I served this delicious compote with cheese but it can be served with pasta, on pizza, on grilled meats or fish! It is absolutely delicious!

  • 2 pounds cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • Juice of a lemon
  • 1 Serrano pepper, chopped fine
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons salt
  • ¼ cup fresh basil, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Transfer the tomatoes to a cookie sheet and bake for half an hour or till the tomatoes get a bit soft and the skin looks loose. Take out and let cool and slide the skins off. Transfer the tomatoes to a saucepan. Add the oil, brown sugar, lemon juice, pepper and salt. Bring to a boil and simmer on low heat for 20 to 25 minutes. Taste for seasonings and turn heat off. Once the compote is cooled off add the basil and serve with cheese or as a topping for pizza or any meat or fish.
