This is one of the easiest side dishes I've found. I don't even like most tomatoes, but I love these sweet little cherry tomatoes. This is the basic recipe, but you can also add slivered garlic to the roasting pan and/or chopped fresh basil and Parmesan cheese at the end. Very good with pasta!

As a quick afterthought and in a hurry, I tossed my basket of cherry tomatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper, put them in a aluminum pie pan and placed in the Traeger BBQ while my pork chops were cooking. They added a delicious pop to our dinner. I look forward to making them again with all the add-ins. Read More

7.21.18I set the timer for 30 minutes (recipe says 35-40), and many of the tomatoes already burst, they were overcooked. Also, they stuck horribly to the foil-lined baking sheet. Certainly wouldn’t serve this batch as a side dish, but they were quite good on a Friday-night pizza. As with any roasted veggie, they have a very intense, deep flavor. If I were to make again, I will start checking for doneness at 20 minutes Read More

Cherry tomatoes will keep their shape and not burst if you poke them once or twice...I use a skewer. Rather than roasting. I prefer to lightly saute them in a small frying pan. Wiggle the pan to heat them on all sides! They keep their shape beautifully. Read More

This was the easiest side dish that worked so well with balsamic roasted chicken. The hint of balsamic on the roasted tomatoes made a terrific blending. Read More
