Grape tomatoes are sweeter than cherry tomatoes, and they're easier to eat in a single bite. They've become the darling of crudités platters and the poster veggie for healthy snacks. Here, they are sautéed for a few minutes and tossed with flavorful pesto and Parmesan.
Recipe Ingredient Details:
1/2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup chopped onion (fresh or frozen)
1 pint (12 ounces) grape tomatoes
1 teaspoon minced garlic (jarred or fresh)
2 tablespoons basil pesto, excess oil drained (jarred or fresh)
1 teaspoon grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and black pepper (to taste)
Heat oil in a large skillet and sauté onion until tender. Add tomatoes and sauté until they blister and burst, about 3 minutes.
Stir in garlic. Remove from heat and stir in pesto, cheese, salt, and pepper.
