If you have tomatoes coming out of your ears like we do this time of year, here is one way you can use them up.  And the aroma in your house will make you hungry!

Roasted Tomatoes

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

Line a cookie sheet with foil

Slice tomatoes and put slices close together on cookie sheet (Roma tomatoes work best)

Sprinkle with salt and ground pepper

Mince 6 cloves garlic and add to 1/2 cup olive oil (adding some basil is optional)

Brush oil mixture onto tomato slices

Bake until skins begin to wrinkle then turn oven off and leave tomatoes inside until oven is cool

Store in freezer bags for future use

During the winter we use them in spaghetti sauce, tomato soup, and other soups


…So guess what I’m doing today…
