Herb Roasted Tomatoes


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.

Herb Roasted Tomatoes

What you’ll need:
8-12 Roma tomatoes – quartered
3 cloves garlic – sliced
extra virgin olive oil
1/2-1 tbsp dried basil (1/2 for less tomatoes, whole for more tomatoes)

What to do:
Preheat oven to 375. Spray a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Place your quartered tomatoes into a bowl. Drizzle enough olive oil to coat well. Add your sliced garlic. Season with salt & pepper & basil. Toss together until seasoning and oil covers tomatoes. Place tomatoes onto a baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes.

Buon Appetito!

    Wonderful. So sweet and savory at the same time. We used it as a side dish to Chicken Francaise!

    I agree, adorned tomatoes are the best! I am going to make these roasted tomatoes tonight, to serve with bolognaise ravioli.

    Tomatoes are so great. I’ve never tried roasting them. I like to make extra bruschetta topping and use it for salad next day. I bet these would also be good cold.
