Oven Roasted Tomatoes with Garlic and Herbs

These little bad boys are so dang good. I usually eat them over grilled chicken or over pasta. My father in law loves them over striped bass....I will cook the fish but I defiantly wont ever eat it. Sorry not a fish fan. I can't do it. I have found anything I ate in abundance as a child I can no longer eat today. I'm weird I know. Give these a try they won't disappoint.
  • Ingredients
  • 4 cups Grape Tomatoes
  • 4 cloves Minced Garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Pepper
  • ½ teaspoons Dried Basil
  • ½ teaspoons Dried Oregano
  • ¼ teaspoons Crushed Red Pepper Flakes, Optional
  • Directions
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Place a piece of aluminum foil over a baking sheet.
  • Place the tomatoes and garlic into a mixing bowl. Drizzle with olive oil, and toss until evenly coated. Season with salt and pepper, basil and oregano (and crushed red pepper if you want a little kick), then spread the tomato mixture evenly onto the prepared baking sheet.
    Bake the grape tomatoes in the preheated oven until the skins pop and start to brown, 15 to 20 minutes.
