Roasted Tomatoes

Author Melissa Sperka


  • 3 lbs fresh tomatoes
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic salt or sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • ¼ cup balsamic glaze [optional]
  • shaved Parmesan cheese or goat cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside.
  • Quarter the tomatoes and place them on the baking sheet cut side up. Drizzle each tomato quarter with olive oil, then sprinkle with sugar, salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Roast for 35-40 minutes or until the tomatoes begin to caramelize.
  • Turn the oven off and move the pan to the lowest oven rack.
  • Leaving the oven door ajar, let the tomatoes rest in the oven for 30 minutes.
  • Serve warm as a side dish sprinkled with the cheese of your choice, and a drizzle of balsamic glaze if you like.


These tomatoes can be enjoyed as a side dish, on pizza, tossed with hot pasta or on toasted bread as a sandwich.
