Italian Roasted Tomatoes Recipe
This is a very simple recipe that’s delicious tossed with cooked pasta, or truth be told, eaten on its own with a fork ;-)
We used more of those lovely Sicilian grape tomatoes in this recipe, combining them with oregano, salt, and olive oil for a dish that’s definitely greater than the sum of its parts…
Slice the grape tomatoes in half and place them face up on a baking pan lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle them with salt and oregano and bake them at 180 degrees (350 Fahrenheit) for 45 minutes or until they wrinkle. Pour a bit of olive oil over them, cover, and let them rest.
The simplicity of this dish is the essence of what I love about Italian cuisine. Simple ingredients, simple techniques, amazing flavor, and a laid back quality that lends itself to leisurely meal with a good bottle of Italian Red… my favorite is Amarone!
