Best way to get summer flavors year-round.

Though we adore the recipe these are based on (David Bonom's Aromatic Slow-Roasted Tomatoes from December 2009), we wanted a faster update. So in place of plum tomatoes went little grape tomatoes, which roast to concentrated sweetness in less than half the time. Serve as they are for a side dish, on crostini with ricotta for an appetizer, or tossed with pasta and oil for a main dish.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 200°.

Step 2

Combine first 7 ingredients, tossing gently to coat. Arrange tomatoes, cut sides up, on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Roast at 200° for 3 hours.

I make this often. It is easy and really tasty.

Wonderful way to use excess grape tomatoes

Made this dish exactly according to the recipe with grape tomatoes from my garden.  They are incredibly sweet.  It was great served over pasta.  Next time, I’ll leave out the sugar because the tomatoes were already so sweet.

This recipe popped up on my Facebook feed today and since I was making Cooking Light's Vegetable Lasagna (May 2012) that called for broiled cherry tomatoes - so I decided to slow roast them instead. And I'm so glad I did! These are delicious and it really added great flavor to the dish. Will definitely make these again.

So easy to make. So delicious. I made these for a friend's holiday open house because I could make them ahead, transport them easily and serve them at room temperature. They were a hit!
