We are big tomato fans in my house and I use them all the time in pasta, salads, and sauces. I also love to roast them with different toppings to make the perfect side dish. This recipe is simple… tomatoes, salt, pepper, and olive oil. It goes well with any meat or seafood and it’s very easy to make. I love how sweet the tomatoes become once roasted. Not only do my husband and I love these but so do our kids.
Simply Roasted Tomatoes:
- 2 large tomatoes (I use vine-ripened)
- 1 clove of garlic, sliced thinly
- Olive oil, to taste
- Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
How to Make Simply Roasted Tomatoes
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or tin foil.
Cut tomatoes in half lengthwise. Gently slide the garlic slices into the soft centers of each tomato. Drizzle each tomato half with a bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper, to taste.
Place into the oven to roast for 35-40 minutes, or until softened.
