This is heavenly! I served these as a side with a vegetarian thin crust pizza and they sure disappeared. I did take some liberties Rita. I only did two tomatoes (romas) I cut each tomato into 8 pieces so they were quite thin cut. Mixed the tomatoes, garlic, rosemary, basil & lots of pepper. Spread that on parchment paper on my pizza stone. Then I lightly sprayed the tomatoes with Olive oil. Baked at 200 for 5 1/2 hours. Because they were cut smaller they did get quite dark but they tasted fantastic. The garlic was wonderful. Thanks Rita for posting this recipe that will be used over & over again.
