ABOUT Seasonal Cherry Tomatoes Marinara Pasta! RECIPE

The pasta sauce made of seasonal cherry tomatoes or grape tomatoes (both are a type of mini tomatoes), is unbelievably incredible! Seasonal cherry tomatoes are fragrant and bursting with flavour. If you get them in your part of the world, make sure you make the most of their peak season by using them to make large quantities of Marinara sauce, in addition to using them raw in salads and paninis. This pasta sauce is very tasty and full of flavour. The trick is to not use too many ingredients in the sauce or they can dominate the mild flavour of the tomatoes. Give it a go friends! Enjoy!
