Tomatoes-on-vineHerbed Tomatoes

3 TBL olive oil
2 tsp minced garlic
4 Cups cherry tomatoes or grape tomatoes
2 tsp chopped fresh basil
2 tsp chopped fresh parsley
2 tsp chopped fresh oregano
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp black pepper

Heat the olive oil in a saute pan large enough to hold all the tomatoes in one layer. Add the garlic to the oil and cook over medium heat for 30 seconds. Add the tomatoes, basil, parsley, oregano, salt and pepper. Reduce the heat to low and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, stir gently occasionally, until the tomatoes begin to loose their firmness. Serve alone or over pasta.
