You can use as much garlic as you like. We like to roast the tomatoes a little longer for a darker, more rich and smoky flavor. You can also chop the tomatoes up and save it as a fantastic sauce! If you have a Roast function on your oven, go ahead and use that mode. The texture comes out a touch better using Roast. Roast the tomatoes to your preferred darkness.
Pre-heat oven to Roast or Bake at 425°F *see headnote.
Lay aluminum foil on sheet pan and place all tomatoes cut side up. Add garlic. Drizzle olive oil on top of tomatoes and garlic. Sprinkle salt and pepper (and herbs if you want) on top of tomatoes and garlic.
Roast tomatoes for about 30 minutes, or until the tomatoes are roasted and slightly brown or charred on edges. Serve with breakfast eggs, steak, chicken seafood or anytime you want an awesome side dish, or blend up into a sauce.
