I discovered this recipe while watching Martha Stewart. She had a guest on that was making a Roasted Roma Tomato Lasagna, that I have since made. The lasagna was consumed in one sitting and everyone was full and happy. I have to say, I think that the lasagna has become my favorite....it is a meatless wonder! I will be posting the recipe for the lasagna soon so you too can enjoy the goodness.
In the meantime, please don't deny yourself the yumminess of these roasted tomatoes. You will thank me for bringing it to your attention!
Roasted Roma Tomatoes
(original recipe from Martha Stewart)
8 cups Roma or plum tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsp salt
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tbsp pepper, freshly ground prefered
1/2 cup garlic, chopped
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place ingredients in a large bowl, mix to combine. Spread tomato mixture evenly on a large baking sheet and transfer to oven. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes and mash, using a potato masher or back of a spoon. Return pan to oven and continue to bake until soft and juicy, about 15 to 20 minutes more.
After 20 minutes, they are begging you to mash them and release their juice....
After an additional 20 minutes, you have this most delightful goodness!
Go ahead and sneak a taste...try with a cracker....oh yes...you can thank me now....
