Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsay have been complaining about how people don’t bother to cook their meals these days, relying on frozen meals and takeaways instead. Well, this dish is really quick and easy to prepare. You can do it in 15-20 minutes. Place 500g of cherry tomatoes (halved lengthwise) in a shallow flameproof casserole dish. Add 1 tbsp of chopped basil, 1 tbsp of chopped thyme, 1 tbsp of lemon juice, 1/2 tsp of sugar, 2 tbsp of olive oil and 2 thinly sliced garlic cloves. Mix well. Cook under a pre-heated grill for 10 minutes or until the tomatoes are charred and soft, stirring once or twice. Serve with cooked gnocchi and grated parmesan cheese.

I added too much lemon. The recipe requires the zest of half a lemon. I think it’s way too much so I have now reduced it to just 1 tbsp of lemon juice
