There are so many uses for roasted tomatoes. We like to use them as pizza toppings, salad ingredients or even as an alternative to pasta sauce. We can come up with more than one way to eat these roasted tomatoes for every meal of the day because they’re just that good.
Roasted tomatoes have a natural sweetness, and the herb and garlic vinaigrette that marinates them for an earthy contrast. There’s a lot of garlic in this recipe, so it’s bursting with flavor. We like to spread it on crusty bread like a bruschetta or layer it on top of baked chicken breasts for a flavorful weekday dinner. The sky’s the limit when it comes to our oven-roasted herbed tomatoes, so make up a big batch and store any leftovers for omelets the next day.
