Baked Baby Roma Tomatoes

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 30 mins

I bought some trays of Baby Roma Tomatoes and they were great in a salad. I decided to bake some and they were delicious- just melted in your mouth. You could make this with larger tomatoes-just bake a little longer in the oven


  1. Preheat oven to 160°C with the fan or 180°C if not using a fan forced oven.
  2. Slice the tomatoes in half lengthways and place in a shallow baking dish.
  3. Pour over the olive oil and toss tomatoes to coat. Check the tomatoes are sitting cut side up and sprinkle with dried basil and sea salt.
  4. Bake in the oven 30 minutes.

This is a great, easy and flavourful recipe that goes great with so many things. I can imagine this being great tossed with some hearty pasta or atop a salad. YUM!
I used dried rosemary and parsley as thats what I prefer and had on hand. It worked out really well and the flavour of the maters was outstanding!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing a great keeper with us, Jubes!

7/11 Hot and dry weather has produced a bumper crop of juicy Romas ! Trying to use all of our garden produce, had to prepare these yesterday and warm up this evening for dinner. SUCH concentration of flavor ! SOOO good! !Remains a favorite for homegrown 'maters.

9/08 We are having the BEST crop of Romas EVER ! Nice and plump, and very firm. This was a simple, delicious preparation-- topped with FRESH basil (gonna miss that plant!), and baked. Wish i had found this recipe earlier in the season -- most of the tomatoes are gone. Thanks, **Jubes**.
