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
- Preheat oven to 160°C with the fan or 180°C if not using a fan forced oven.
- Slice the tomatoes in half lengthways and place in a shallow baking dish.
- Pour over the olive oil and toss tomatoes to coat. Check the tomatoes are sitting cut side up and sprinkle with dried basil and sea salt.
- Bake in the oven 30 minutes.
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!
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!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing a great keeper with us, Jubes!

I loved these tomatos!<br/>This is a delicious sidedish especially with barbecued meat.<br/>On half of the tomatoes I added some chopped garlic and yummy!<br/>Thanks a lot for this simple but tasty recipe!
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.
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**.
