Ina Garten Roasted Tomatoes

 





This recipe for roasted tomatoes is from Ina Garten and appeared in House Beautiful. It's amazing how a few simple ingredients and high heat can turn a fresh tomato into such a sweet and savory treat.

I had planned to make Ina Garten's meat loaf for a dinner we were having with friends. While looking for her meat loaf recipe, I happened upon this recipe for roasted tomatoes. It looked good so I decided to try it. Our friends really enjoyed them. They were gone in no time and I had two requests for the recipe.

Just a few days later my husband and I visited our favorite farm stand Papa John's, and found beautiful roma (plum) tomatoes. I made a double batch for him and I to enjoy.

This would be a perfect vegetable side dish for any meal, and it went perfectly with the meat loaf. This dish would be perfect for a holiday buffet as it can be served at room temperature.

Please read my "cook's tips" following the recipe.



INA GARTEN'S ROASTED TOMATOES

Serves 4 to 6

12 plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise, cores and seeds removed
4 tablespoons good olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 large garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons sugar
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

2. Arrange the tomatoes on a sheet pan, cut sides up, in a single layer. Drizzle with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle with the garlic, sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.

3. Roast for 25 to 30 minutes, until the tomatoes are beginning to caramelize. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Cook's tips: I think that "less is more" when it comes to the olive oil, as both times I've made this recipe I was left with quite a bit of liquid. Next time I make this dish I will use less olive oil. To reheat them I remove the tomatoes from the liquid and put them on a piece of aluminum foil on a sheet pan and return them to the oven at 375 degrees for 10 - 12 minutes until they're hot. They're even better the next day. The original recipe was barely enough for the 6 we had for dinner (I guess we have very hearty appetites!) and I wish I'd made a few more.
