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!
