 For the White Wine Tomato Basil Sauce:

  1. To prepare the sauce heat the oil in a large Xtrema skillet either the 10- or 12-inch Versa or 10-inch Traditions pan over low/medium heat
  2. Next add the crushed red pepper flakes and garlic and sauté together for a few minutes until garlic becomes nice and fragrant
  3. Time to toss in the sliced cherry tomatoes and cook down to create the sauce.  Keep stirring the tomatoes on occasion as they begin to become soft.  It is important to keep stirring so they don’t get too soft where they lose their shape. Adjust heat according so they keep their shape during the cooking process
  4. Add in the white wine/champagne with the tomatoes mixture and stir and allow the mixture to come to a light simmer
