There’s just something so incredibly appealing about a sweet side dish. The original recipe called for a buttered baking dish, but because they aren’t always safe to put over direct heat, a skillet was used in this recipe. Regular basting of the tomatoes helps them brown and intensifies their flavor.Unknown Source
