Roasted Tomatoes


8-10 small to medium ripe tomatoes
6-8 garlic cloves (or as many as you want!)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 sprig of basil or parsley
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Slice the tomatoes into half and place cut side up in a baking pan. Add the peeled garlic to the pan as well. Drizzle the olive oil over the tomatoes and garlic. Sprinkle salt and pepper. Place the basil sprig on top.

Place the pan in the oven and bake for 30-40 minutes until the tomatoes are slightly charred.

Serve hot with some toasted french bread.
