This recipe is good year round, but is especially good when you can use fresh from the garden cherry tomatoes.

It is based on a recipe that comes from A CELEBRATION OF WELLNESS cookbook.

3Add cherry tomatoes, oregano, salt and pepper and simmer until tomatoes are softened and give up their juice - about 10 minutes or so. Depending on how juicy the tomatoes are, you may need to add a little water.
