COOKING WITH CLORIS -- SLOW ROASTED TOMATOES


In the winter, tomatoes don’t have the flavor they do when picked right from your summer garden. If you’d like tomatoes with intense flavor, try this recipe from Cloris. -- AP

SLOW ROASTED TOMATOES
(serves 4-6)

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
8 large plum tomatoes
cooking spray

Combine the sugar, olive oil, and seasonings in a large bowl. Slice tomatoes in half. Toss in oil mixture to coat.

Coat baking sheet with cooking spray. Arrange tomatoes, cut sides up, on tray. Roast in pre-heated oven at 200 degrees for 7-1/2 hrs.

Wouldn’t this be perfect served over angel hair pasta and sprinkled with fresh grated parmesan cheese? -- AP

Tomatoes are actually more nutritious when they are cooked. This is such an easy recipe and I totally agree that angel hair pasta and parmesan cheese would complete the dish. I plan to try this soon!

I've always preferred my tomatoes cooked, Jane.
