A simple tutorial on how to make roasted tomatoes!
Every once in awhile, I like to share a “How To” post. Sometimes things come off too complicated or we just don’t think of these simple little things we can easily do that can actually make a huge difference in the flavor of our meals! Roasted garlic and toasted coconut are two of my favorite ingredients that make it easy to change the flavor of so many dishes! Today I am sharing how to make roasted tomatoes because they too can add more depth to your dishes – especially pasta dishes!
Making roasted tomatoes is actually really easy. I usually start with grape or cherry tomatoes because you don’t have to worry about doing any chopping. Just wash, pat dry, and toss them into a small bowl.

Drizzle the tomatoes with olive oil and sprinkle on some salt and pepper to taste. Give them a good toss so they are all covered in the oil.
Spread the tomatoes onto a sheet pan. I would recommend lining your pan with a Silpat mat to make cleaning up any baked on tomato juices easier. You can also line the pan with foil.
Baked at 400°F for about 15 minutes, or until they are all collapsed.
These roasted tomatoes go great tossed into just about any kind of pasta dish! I most recently used them in my Pasta with Creamy Goat Cheese Tomato Sauce recipe, but they even work well in pasta dishes that don’t have any type of red sauce! I also like to use them in pasta salads, veggies wraps, and paninis!
I hope this quick and easy tutorial on how to make roasted tomatoes has inspired you to give them a try! I am always looking for new ideas and would love to know how you are planning to use them too!
