Very Baked Tomatoes

   
  Ingredients:
4 tomatoes
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
Chopped fresh herbs. A good start might be 2 tablespoons chopped basil. If you are using rosemary, which is stronger, use 1 tablespoon or less. Personally, I’m in the mix and match group, and use parsley, thyme, oregano and rosemary.
salt and freshly ground pepper

Preparation:
Cut out the tomato cores, then slice the tomatoes in half. Place the tomatoes in a baking pan, cut side up. Mix the olive oil, garlic, herbs, salt, and pepper, and pour the mix over the tomatoes. Bake at 325 degrees F for 2 to 3 hours. The tomatoes will exude juices, collapse in a heap, and then begin to caramelize. Wait for it – the end result will be well worth it.
