Roasting Tomatoes...Super EZ and Super Delicious!

Jimmy and I attended an at home cooking class at our friend Laurie's house. Our Cooking instructor was Aline Steiner of "A Table Hawaii". Aline is a Excellent Chef who specializes in being your Personal Chef. She goes to your home and prepares your meals. She also does at home catered affairs and at home Cooking classes.  We LoVe Aline!  From a Terrific Menu, we worked with Aline, side by side, on each dish. One of them was Roasted Tomatoes A La Caprese. Here's a short version of what we did.  Slice ripe tomatoes in half. Deseed tomatoes using want to remove as much liquid from them before roasting bc liquid will ooze out during roasting.  You want to be roasting and not boiling tomatoes. Roasting Good. Boiling Bad. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with powdered sugar to aid in carmelizing the tomatoes, sprinkle with a lot of salt, add Garlic slices and spices of your choice...we used Herbs of Provence. Roast in Oven at 425 degress. When they're done, let them cool a little. Plate them, add chopped Basil, and slivers of Manchego cheese or whatever cheese you prefer. We added a balsamic vinaigrette.  Loved the way they tasted. EZ PZ. Yummy for your Tummy!
