Roasted Tomatoes

These simple, fresh, and gorgeous roasted tomatoes are my favorite new side dish – and they are about to be yours.

We’re roasting tomatoes with just a bit of seasoning and olive oil for under 20 minutes, and topping them with plenty of parmesan and basil to pack a flavorful punch.

This is one side dish that pairs perfectly with pasta, steaks, pork, chicken, fish, vegetarian dinners and so much more – we hope you love it as much as we do!

If you love rich tomato and garlic flavor, this super simple side dish is going to be your favorite.

I like to eat them with big meaty dinners – or over a simple salad, and even veggie noodles for a quick lunch.

The best part of this recipe? The smell from this side dish is amazing – your whole house fills up with garlic, basil and tomato and it is to die for!

  • Serve with steaks, pork, chicken, vegetarian meals, or Italian food – this dinner is super versatile!
  • Easy to clean – almost no mess!
  • Vegetarian and can be made vegan (using vegan parmesan, or skip the cheese).
  • Tons of flavor – without any grains or gluten, or extra additives!
  • Even picky eaters love this dish – and tomatoes are good for you, so you can feel good about serving it to your family!

Opt for smaller tomatoes for the best results – but any tomatoes will work for this recipe, though it will impact cook time.

We based our cooking time on small, on the vine hydroponic campari tomatoes.

If you choose a larger beefsteak tomato, plan on 30-40 minutes to get a softer tomato. For cherry tomatoes, plan on 10-15 minutes.
