These frozen cherry tomatoes give great texture to sauce. Think canned tomatoes when you grab this bag out of the freezer. Unlike the frozen tomato puree (which is a perfect base for pizza sauce, chili and tomato soup) cherry tomatoes still have their shape which can give you a quick but hearty tomato sauce. Of course, add cherry tomatoes whole or chopped in to your other sauces, soups and chilis for more dimension!
Fast, tastes fresh tomato sauce:
In a medium pot over medium-high heat, pour in 3 tbs olive oil. Add a chopped onion and cook until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add 3 cloves chopped garlic and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Give it a stir and cook for another minute. Add the tomatoes, a pinch of sugar, and 2 tbs of basil. Reduce the heat a bit and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. If you grab the pasta this week, you’ve got dinner in less than a half an hour! A dream dinner after a busy day.

Frozen Cherry Tomatoes
Frozen cherry tomatoes should be thawed and treated as you would a canned tomato, rather than as a fresh tomato. Thaw in the fridge for a few hours,then fold into pasta or toss with a little olive oil and some basil & bake (at around 400 degrees).
