Chunky Cherry Tomatoes with Basil

(originally made 7/17/2008)
I got tired of waiting for my sweet 100 plants to produce enough tomatoes to make this dish, so I bought a nice container of grape tomatoes at the supermarket   :)     Mine sat a lot longer than the recipe called for, my menus got juggled and then I forgot to bring them with me when I ate away from home yesterday.     I don't buy fresh basil often, but between this and the Tomato Basil Snackers I made earlier in the week, it's definitely inspired me to pick up a basil plant!    No big changes to this one, except I scaled it back to about 1/3rd of the original recipe, and I used jarred minced garlic.     :)   It would be great tossed with pasta, or chopped even finer and used with some toasted garlic rubbed bread, bruschetta style   :)
