I made this up and was so pleased at how good and easy to prepare it was, I wanted to share it. You can mix the variety of tomatoes you use. If all you have is hot house tomatoes, roasting them is a great way to bring out some flavor. You can adjust the amount of garlic, but more is better. I used prepared basil pesto sauce, but you can use your own. You can use any heart healthy oil.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Slice tomatoes and onions into wedges.
  4. Peel garlic cloves.
  5. Place tomatoes, onion, and garlic on the cookie sheet. Drizzle with oil and roast for 30-35 minutes.

  8. Stir in pesto.
