Roasted Tomatoes

Greens are overrated. I mean, they have wonderful health benefits and all, but there is something about having a tomato as a side-dish that is extremely refreshing.

My husband is not a fan of tomatoes. The first couple of times I made this dish, he barely touched them. Then he realized I wouldn’t stop making them and finally actually tried them.

“Woah. These are good.”

Well, no sh*t Sherlock. Because tomatoes are AMAZING and roasting them with garlic, olive oil, and salt and pepper make them even more AMAZING!

These tomatoes take about 8 minutes to prep and 25 minutes to cook. Perfect to go along with a more complicated main dish like the spinach-stuffed chicken breasts I will be posting later this week.
