Roasted Tomatoes

Tomatoes are loaded with nutrients that are part of a healthy diet. Use fresh tomatoes for this recipe, but as you plan family meals consider using tomatoes in all forms; fresh, frozen and canned. Roasted tomatoes are sweet and full of flavor. They can be eaten right out of the oven, as a side dish, used in recipes such as tomato soup, stews, sauces, or casseroles.

Preparation Steps

  1. Rinse tomatoes, pat dry with paper towels, then, cut in half lengthwise. Sprinkle the tomatoes with salt, then turn cut side down on a baking sheet covered with paper towels.
