Oven Roasted Tomatoes

Can you tell I love tomatoes? One of my favorite ways to enjoy them is Oven Roasted. The flavor is so concentrated and smoky, and great for making sauces, pizzas, tossed in pasta or salads…so many uses.  Also, very easy to make. I like to use locally grown Hamakua Cocktail Tomatoes when I roast tomatoes. These are smaller than regular tomatoes and larger than cherry or grape tomatoes, just about the size of a golf ball.
