Crank up the heat and char some grape tomatoes in the skillet. In the meantime, finely dice some shallots and garlic. Add some kalamata olives and capers (and a bit of the brine from the jars) to the tomatoes. Add in garlic and shallots, cooking until translucent. Incorporate a tin of diced tomatoes and fresh (or dried) oregano. Set to simmer and allow to reduce.
