Baked Baby Roma Tomatoes

"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"

    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!<br/>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!<br/>THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing a great keeper with us, Jubes!<br/>Made and reviewed for the Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap #57 October 2011.

    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. <br/><br/>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**.

    Very nice recipe, simple and delicious! Served this as a side dish but I think it would be great as an appetizer with some crusty garlic bread. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    Very tasty and simple side dish. Perfect for when the garden gets a little tomato happy :o) All of my kids loved the tomatoes fixed this way which is a real plus. DH said they tasted a little pizzay (his own dialect lol)...but still ate his tomato without complaints. I will definitely make this again. Made and reviewed for the 30th AUS/NZ Recipe Swap
