I love tomatoes, especially oven roasted tomatoes where every bite is bursting with the juicy and fresh tastes of the produce. These Italian roasted tomatoes are the BEST roasted tomatoes I have ever tasted!
This is a healthy side dish that goes well with almost every thing. In fact, they are so good that I can pretty much finish them all by myself.

Roasting tomatoes in the oven is one of the easiest ways to cook tomatoes. I prefer Roma Tomatoes for their sweetness; the size of Roma tomatoes is ideal for slow roasting.
However, you can also use cherry tomatoes or grape tomatoes. The temperature, time and seasonings used are crucial in roasting tomatoes. For the best roasted tomatoes, you have to use a lower temperature (300F) and roast for an hour.
Fresh off the oven, these roasted tomatoes are oozing with flavors. They are garlicky, infused with the aroma of olive oil, juicy and absolutely delightful.
The best thing about this recipe is that it takes only 15 minutes active time and the oven does the rest. Enjoy!

Italian seasoning in all supermarkets in UK.
Lovely recipe, thank you
Hi Marianne – thanks for your link. Appreciate you love these Italian roasted tomatoes. :)
Would a slow roast oven temp be 250 degrees?
I did 300F and it was perfect.
I love your recipes also, but I’m with Mark on this one and we’re in Chicago.
Hi Richard, this recipe was done from scratch. The only bottled ingredient I used was Italian seasoning, which is amazing. I can practically still make this from scratch (100%) by adding 1/8 teaspoon of everything in the Italian seasoning, but what’s the point? Ultimately, it’s the end result that counts. Try this recipe and let me know if you don’t like it. You can skip it but it won’t be as delicious though. :)
