Recipe by Normaone

These tomatoes are wonderful in a variety of different ways. They can be used by themselves as a side dish, as a topping for brushetta, tossed with pasta or as an addition to a stew. The roasting really brings out the flavor of the tomatoes.

The combination of the tomatoes, onions, garlic, and basil is out of this world. We love the flavours! I made a few changes out of necessity. My plum tomatoes from the garden were small so I more than doubled them, but I kept the onions and garlic as given. I reduced the amount of oil to 1/3 cup but still found it to be an awful lot of oil. I would go with 1/4 cup next time or even less. Still a wonderful recipe, so thank you!
