You can roast different types of tomatoes (I used Roma here) but more often than not, I choose the little guys—cherry or grape.
My favorite way to roast tomatoes is simply with sliced garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper. These are ingredients that I always have around and you can never go wrong with those flavors! If you want to jazz up the tomatoes a bit, you can add in some hearty herbs like rosemary, oregano or thyme. Or if you're feeling fancy, try adding a pinch of saffron like I did for this pasta!
Once you've roasted your tomatoes, you can eat them all immediately, or store them in the fridge for up to a week. These tomatoes are great on sandwiches, avocado toast and eggs, mixed into pasta or soup, and spooned over meat and fish. I promise, once you get into roasting tomatoes on the reg, you'll be so happy you did!
