I picked up these red and yellow grape tomatoes at our local farmers market. While I could have happily eaten all of them raw, they ended up being roasted down with olive oil, garlic, basil and thyme. The finished product shown here made an unbelievable topping to our andouille sausage and creamy polenta dinner!
Spread them on bread... spoon them on top of a perfectly grilled steak... add shaved parmesan and toss them with spaghetti... However you choose to use them...these roasted tomatoes will guarantee a visually stunning, amazingly flavorful dish!
