How to ….?

What do you do when you have an abundance of tomatoes that are ripening far too quickly in the  summer heat?

You roast them, of course! Rather than just slicing up fresh tomatoes and adding them to your favourite salad or pasta dishes, why not add roasted tomatoes?  This is such a simple, yet delicious way to enjoy those plump cherry tomatoes, (or any others for that matter).

They do not take long at all to cook, and if you will be using the oven to cook any other dishes, then pop these in at the same time, to save on energy, and avoid over-heating the steamy kitchen.
