Slow-roasting tomatoes bring out such sweet, intense flavor. You get almost all of the concentrated flavor of sun-dried tomatoes but without the drying.
Mixed with tons of garlic, oregano, and fresh basil, I don’t know how it works… but it tastes like heaven in your mouth. They take on an intensely deep flavour after roasting and can be used in many different ways. It’s perfect to eat with toast, bread, crackers, salads, pasta, goat cheese, bocconcini… you name it.
My mom makes it since I was a child and everyone loves it.
