Garlic Roasted Grape Tomatoes in Olive Oil

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by JamesDeansGirl

Simple ingredients really make an impression here. Now, usually my recipe fondness is biased to desserts, but every now and again, a "foodie" one will catch me off guard! We like this with pasta, chicken, and on sandwiches with thinly sliced ham, turkey, provolone, and mozzarella.

Outstanding! We made this alongside a butterflied chicken we were roasting on the grill. Fresh harvest of grape tomatoes and herbs from the garden. Definitely an easy, lovely side dish for my summer repertoire. Thanks!

  1. Preheat oven to 400*F.
  2. In a roasting pan, toss the tomatoes with the garlic, red pepper flakes, and 1 tablespoons of the olive oil; season with salt and pepper.
  3. Roast the tomatoes for about 20 minutes, until they burst and their skins begin to shrivel, stirring once halfway through.
  4. Pour the remaining 2/3 cup olive oil into a medium bowl; crush the rosemary and oregano between your fingers and submerge in the oil.
  5. Add the tomatoes and their juices, stir gently, and let stand for 30 minutes before using.
  6. Store remainder in the refrigerator for up to 3 days; bring to room temperature before serving.
