We love these tomatoes

This past weekend we decided we needed to recreate Sea Girt’s Joe Leone’s roasted tomatoes.  This recipe beats their’s hands down.

    These were very good. Saw another really good recipe for tomatoes from Martha that we have to try– tomato and cheese tarts. Using the store bought pastry dough, cut out rounds, add shredded cheese (mozzarella or fontina), add slice of tomato, brush with olive oil, salt and pepper and bake. Looked really good.
