Baked Ricotta with Caramelized Cherry Tomato Sauce

Caramelized cherry tomatoes are an absolute marvel and go well as a side dish with grilled chicken or fish.  They can even be added to salads for an extra flavor layer.  Here we serve them with baked ricotta which is filled with flavor all by itself, but the combo of the two is amazing!  This is a perfect summer dish for outdoor parties, picnics and BBQs!
