I must admit, I am normally not a fan of the plain tomato, unlesss it is cooked in a sauce or chopped finely on bruschetta ~ then, bring it on. I wondered how they would taste roasted and to the delight of my tastebuds they’re delish! This is such a quick & simple recipe. You can do it in advance of your entrée preparation, they taste even better the longer the flavors marry together. Notice that the garlic is sliced in this recipe. Minced garlic would tend to burn so slicing is best here. When you’re placing them into your serving bowl, don’t forget the drippings. They are amazing to dip your bread into (great as an appetizer this way). Simply delectable.
