This was delicious - even my 8-year-old son said, "Whoa, this is good!" Not typical for him. With a little planning, it was easy, too. Great recipe.

Making this tonight, but I'm wondering what they mean by "cored". I know how to core an apple, but do they mean just remove the round bit on the end? There sure won't be much tomato left if I core it like an apple...frustrating not knowing! **UPDATE** - I ended up just coring out the stem end. The tomatoes turned out great, but it seemed like something was missing, maybe herbs. It was good but not spectacular. For WW, it was 10 pts.

This was a great recipe and very easy to make. Next time, I'll add about a cup of the cooking liquid (rather than 3/4 cup) but other than that, perfect!

I hate tomatoes but loved this dish. The slow roasting took the acid out of the tomato and replaced it with a rich,tang with a hint of sweetness. I used heirloom tomatos instead of plum. I will make it again.
