Balsamic Roasted Tomatoes

I love this recipe because it is SO versatile! Tomatoes already taste good, but when you take the little ones and toss them in some balsamic vinegar and olive oil and roast them until they are soft and the flavors are concentrated, they are absolutely delicious! They are perfect plain as a snack or as toppings for pizza, pasta, or salad. As a bonus, they are actually really good for you. This recipe is the trifecta of cooking: easy, tasty, and healthy!

1 Pint Cherry or Grape Tomatoes
3 T Olive Oil
1 T Balsamic Vinegar
2 Cloves Garlic, Minced
2 tsp Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Kosher Salt

Heat the oven to 450F.

Cut the tomatoes in half and scoop out the insides using a melon baller or spoon.

Whisk the oil, vinegar, garlic, sugar, and salt together. Toss the tomatoes in the mixture and spread on a parchment-lined cookie tray. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until soft and shriveled.
