Roasted Tomatoes (Ina Garten)

12 plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise, seeds (not cores) removed

1/4 olive oil

1 1/2 T balsamic vinegar

2 large garlic cloves, minced

2 tsp sugar

1 1/2 tsp kosher salt

1/2 tsp pepper

10 fresh basil leaves, julienned

Preheat oven to 450. Arrange tomatoes on a sheet pan, cut sides up, in a single layer. Drizzle with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle with the garlic, sugar, salt and pepper. Roast for 25-30 minutes, until the tomatoes start to caramelize and the flavors are concentrated. Sprinkle the basil on top and serve warm or at room temp.

*They can also be slow roasted at 275 for 2 hours.
