Roasted tomatoes

Inspired by Jamie Oliver and Amanda Soule, with the last tomatoes I’ll find at the local market, what a better way to use them if not simply roasted in the oven? You can have them as a side dish, or blend them and use it as a sauce or for the pizza. Ingredients 1 kg

La rentrée: back to post

The move and the new life took a considerable part of my time. And I’m not yet completely adjusted to the new situation. But, hey, I live in France! That’s the best part of it!
