There may be fault codes stored in the power train control module. Knowing any stored fault codes can help diagnose your intermittent stalling condition.

check your ckp (crankshaft position sensor) and cmp make sure theyre both working or it will start then die, if you keep your foot on the gas and it keeps going then its not one of those but its worth a try

If it starts right back up it could be a lot of things. Does the check engine light come on? If so, take it to Autozone and have them find out what code comes up. If no check engine light, it might be your fuel pump is going or something else with the fuel.
