There are plenty of nights where an easy dinner is required.  This is so easy to put together and quick to cook. There is a pleasant surprise when you bite into the baked cherry tomatoes!

With this dinner,  I can go enjoy my son's ballgame without stressing over what are we going to have when we get home.  No need to pick up fast food on a busy night, and that makes this mom very happy!
