Roasted Cherry Tomatoes Recipe: These Easy Roasted Cherry Tomatoes Are the True Gems of Summer

Cherry tomatoes are like sparkling rubies, the true gems of summer. Cherry tomatoes are so colorful, healthy and delicious that I'm guilty of overbuying (or over-growing) them. We can't possibly eat all these tomatoes, but they're too good to waste. 

That's why this easy roasted cherry tomatoes recipe is one of the best ways to use them. So quick and yummy, and they work well with pasta or bruschetta. See additional ideas for how to use them below!

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 8 to 10 minutes
Total Time: 13 to 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 quart cherry tomatoes, whole or sliced in half
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

Love roasted tomatoes. I like to throw some fresh basil or other herbs on top at the end of cooking. I had no idea you could freeze them!
