Roasted tomatoes with herbs and cheese, summer’s best recipe of the season starring caramelized tomatoes, roasted garlic, fresh cut herbs and Parmesan cheese.

Today’s recipe is Roasted Tomatoes with Herbs and Cheese, on of our very favorite eats and the first time you prepare this mouthful of happiness, you’ve got to be patient because it takes a couple of hours in a low and slow oven for the sugars in the tomatoes to caramelize but it’s a wait well rewarded.

First, pick-up two-pounds of tomatoes, in season and fresh if you can find them, if not buy the cluster tomatoes popular in grocery stores. Slice them about a quarter if an inch think and line the tomatoes in a 9” x 13” baking pan prepared with a tablespoon of olive oil spread on the bottom of the dish.

Next, chop several garlic cloves into pieces small enough to easily sprinkle over the tomatoes evenly. Then add two tablespoon each of dried basil and oregano over the top of the tomatoes then, sprinkle liberally with olive oil.

Pop the tomatoes into a pre-heated 350-degree oven for 90:00 minutes.   When done, remove and sprinkle liberally with grated Parmesan cheese and return to the oven until the cheese melts and turns a rich golden color.

Remove from the oven and serve immediately with a hearty dark bread and glass of good red wine. Enjoy!

Recipe Note: Not all ovens heat the same. Some cook fast, others slow. This recipe is truly wonderful when you cook it correctly. Don’t be tempted to take it of the oven too soon, make sure your tomatoes have caramelized, a good browning of the edges is a good thing. Take it out too soon and all you have is stewed tomatoes with herbs. Not bad but not a good as it could have been with just a little more oven time.
