These tomatoes are fantastic!! A great way to use winter tomatoes, they become very sweet and tasty when roasted. Sometimes I only use 2-3 cloves of garlic and place the slices between the tomatoes in the roasting dish. Also I use dried basil if I don't have fresh on hand. I usually roast them the night before and put them in the fridge. Then the next day I chop them up and heat them up and mix with hot pasta, then sprinkle with romano cheese - Delicious!

I loved this! I just pushed thick slivers of garlic right into the tomato halves. I think these would be incredible with some slices of really good mozzerella melted on top. Also, I am going to make a large panfull of these, dice them up and freeze to use in pasta sauce. The flavor is just outstanding. Thanks so much, Allie!

Yummy! Instead of whole garlic cloves inserted between the tomatoes, I simply used jarred fresh minced garlic spooned on top of the tomatoes. Great with grilled ribeyes.
