So, I've once again been blessed by the generosity of a dear friend and her insanely abundant garden. This time, Roma Tomatoes. Oh Romas, how I love thee. This was delicious as a side dish for literally anything. We had it with Meatballs, Mashed Potatoes and Gravy (which was also a gift from this same friend - and equally delicious!).
Original recipe by Ina Garten
Adapted recipe by Kitchen Groovy
12 plum Roma Tomatoes, halved
1/4 C good olive oil
1 1/2 T aged balsamic vinegar
2 large garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Arrange the tomatoes on a sheet pan, cut sides up, in a single layer. Drizzle with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle with garlic, sugar, salt and pepper. Roast for 25-30 minutes, until the tomatoes start to caramelize and the flavores are concentrated.
Serve warm or at room temperature.
Tomatoes are abundant this time of year - this is a must have delicious new side dish to try out!!
