Ripe for the picking!

In an ideal world it would be great to have oven roasted tomatoes on hand always, but sadly there isn't all ways the time and they are not always an economical way to go, but when they are down to $2 per kilo, buy them!   Cut them in half, lay in a tray lined with baking paper, splash over evoo and salt and roast on a very low heat 90 degrees for 3+ hours.  I throw in a bulb of garlic to roast also, this way you have these ingredients for a pizza, quick pasta sauce or jazz up a boring old sandwich. My personal favourite, sopressa salami (hot) cheese, paste out of one clove and of course a couple of roasted tomatoes.  A hand full of rocket with some balsamic glaze thrown in also doesn't go astray either.  These go along way when roasted as the flavour is more intense.  It's amazing what you can do in hurry if you have a couple of yummy ingredients standing by.  Buy vegetables like eggplant and tomatoes when cheap, grill, roast and store them, you will be surprised what you can whip up without breaking the bank.

Tomatoes turned from ordinary to gourmet!
