~oven roasted cherry tomatoes~

“A world without tomatoes is like a string quartet without violins.” – Laurie Colwin

4 pints cherry tomatoes in various colors

extra virgin olive oil

coarse sea salt

freshly ground black pepper

a handful of fresh basil leaves, coarse chopped

Coat tomtoes with olive oil and spread evenly on a jellyroll pan. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Roast for 20 minutes at 400 degrees F. until soft. Transfer to a pretty serving platter and sprinkle with basil and a little more salt. Serve warm or at room temperature. We love these drizzled with a little balsamic vinegar and as a topping on baguette or Italian bread that has been spread with cream cheese.

Enjoy!

      these little multi-colored tomatoes are sweet as candy when they’re roasted in the oven! 🙂

    I love roasting the small cherry tomatoes. This year I haven’t gotten a single cherry as chipmunks are eating them as fast as they ripen.

    These would be really good on a margherite pizza and for gazpacho. Thanks.
