We all know about tinned tomatoes- plum, chopped etc., but these whole cherry tomatoes bring home-cooking into a different league. There is something about the addition of these to a homemade pasta sauce that seems to hit the authentic Italian note we all strive for.
Most of the supermarkets seem to do them.(I've even seen yellow ones before which look quite interesting). They are slightly more expensive than the basic ones, but well worth the extra pennies. You can still 'bulk out' a sauce or dish with a tin of regular chopped tomatoes in addition to these, if you are making a large quantity of sauce.
They are 0pp or 94kcal per tin.
I use them in quite a few of my recipes so it may be worth stocking up on a couple of tins for future use! I have some yummy recipes coming up over the next few weeks, such as chargrilled squid spaghetti and Tuscan fish stew, which will benefit from the addition of these tinned cherry tomatoes.
Wishing your kitchen cupboards a future of tomatoey deliciousness!
