4-5 cloves of Garlic, unpeeled
Place oven rack in top 2/3 of oven and preheat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Half the tomatoes and toss lightly in oil until just glistening.
Arrange tomatoes cut-side up on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Season tomatoes and add herbs, aromatics and whole, unpeeled cloves as desired.

ooo, that first picture is gorgeous. definitely putting this on the menu for next week! 🙂 oh and I LOVE that the garlic roasts itself in its little shell…YUM.
This recipe is on regular rotation for me, all year long, but especially in the summer months.

Wonderful! I made a huge batch with all the tomatoes from our garden…can I freeze this?
I am just days away from a tomato boom in my backyard, and I can’t wait to make this dish again. I am not a food preservation expert, but I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to freeze roasted tomatoes. I would probably use a quart-size freezer bag so that I can thaw one portion at a time. I would also recommend using the frozen package within a few months. With so much moisture in tomatoes, they tend to form ice crystals and go down in quality if you keep them too long. I hope you enjoy them, and have a very nice July.
