Ever try to stab a hot cherry tomato with a fork? Ever try to eat one? So now you know why we cut them in half before cooking. If you have no fresh herbs, the tomatoes are delicious simply sautéed.
Heat the butter in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring constantly, until tender and warm, 1 to 2 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper and sprinkle with the herbs. Serve with beef, lamb, chicken, or fish.
