Dynamite Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

June 5, 2012

These easy roasted cherry tomatoes are a dynamite dish.  Cherry tomatoes are tossed in olive oil and salt and pepper before being roasted low and slow for six hours.  During that time the water in the tomatoes evaporates and the flavor deepens and intensifies.  You can tossed these slow roasted tomatoes with pasta, serve them on top of crostini, or even pair them with fresh mozzarella and basil to make a caprese salad.
