Oregano, garlic, Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs give roasted tomatoes wonderful flavor. Serve as a side dish or coarsely chop and toss with cooked pasta.

Ingredients

Plum tomato(es)

6 medium, halved lengthwise

Olive oil

2 tsp, extra virgin, divided

Kosher salt

¼ tsp, or to taste

Panko breadcrumbs

¼ cup(s)

Minced garlic

½ tsp

Dried oregano

½ tsp

Black pepper

pinch, freshly ground

Grated Parmesan cheese

2 Tbsp

Fresh parsley

1 tsp, chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a small baking sheet with aluminum foil (or coat with cooking spray).
  2. Toss tomatoes with 1 teaspoon oil and salt on prepared pan; flip tomatoes so they are cut-side up.
  3. In a small bowl, combine breadcrumbs, garlic, oregano, pepper, cheese and remaining teaspoon oil; sprinkle breadcrumb mixture over tomatoes.
  4. Bake until breadcrumbs are golden and tomatoes are softened, about 20 minutes; remove to a serving platter and sprinkle with parsley. Yields 1 tomato half per serving.

Notes

If you prefer your breadcrumbs very golden, consider broiling the tomatoes very briefly after they are done baking.
