- 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered

- In a large saucepan, or medium skillet and over medium heat, cook garlic in oil until just golden brown around the edges.
- Stir in fennel, olives, and artichoke; cook for 5 minutes.
- Add tomatoes, rosemary, and oregano; continue cooking until mixture is just heated. Add salt and pepper to taste.
