This is a dish I put together for my son, Jordan, who is a huge fan of both tomatoes and mushrooms. The flavors keep blending together, so it is great the day you make it and even better the following day.

We absolutely love this! Had it as a side one night and the next night I put it on fresh spinach with fresh mozzarella, and grilled chicken for a healthy salad. The sauce made a wonderful dressing for the salad. Read More

Sorry followed the recipe exactly and it was not a hit. Made for a potluck and it was the only thing left at the end of the evening. Read More

After hearing so much good stuff about this dish I had to try it. Made it last night for supper and about half way through the meal my husband said he was getting full and couldn't finish it all. Well when all was said and done he left his stuffed potato(which he loves) mostly uneaten and took seconds of this! I just had the leftovers for lunch and it is just as good the next day! Thanks Sunny! Read More

Oh. My. Goodness. This is outstanding! I only added a little minced garlic I made no other changes. Recipe didn't specify which kind of mushrooms to use so I used baby bellas. I tried it before I let it set in the fridge and had to hurry to put it away. Amazing. So wonderful. This one's going to be made a lot this summer I can tell. Thanks Sunny. Read More

We've had glorious weather lately and I wanted an easy dinner to serve the family on the patio. This fit the bill for a side dish using our first batch of cherry tomatoes. Wonderful easy to prepare and a perfect complement to the Grilled Sirloin Steak with Garlic Butter also from AR. Served over romaine leaves to add a bit of greens to the dinner and Texas toast. Easy peasy! Thank you Sunnybird! Read More

So yummy! I forgot to purchase fresh basil so I used dried instead. Flavors were still really good. Next time will be with the fresh basil and I know that will be amazing because there is nothing like the taste of fresh basil. I also used baby bella (crimini) mushrooms which hold up great and are nice and meaty in texture. Simple easy and a very tasty side dish. Will make again. Thanks SunnyB for posting! Read More

Awesome recipe great for when the cherry tomato plant is going crazy producing! I don't find the sugar neccessary for the dressing especially when using super high quality balsamic. Read More
