Slow Roasted Roma Tomatoes

Forget those tasteless chewy prepackaged sun dried tomatoes. Do yourself a favor and set aside a few moments to prepare these fresh slow roasted tomatoes. The flavor of these tomatoes is so rich and dense. Although they take 6 hours to slow roast, they take only minutes to prepare and the results are phenomenal. There are endless possibilities to incorporate these ruby gems into your menu planning for appetizers, entrees, sides and salads. This weekend, I made a quick and easy appetizer to serve with aperitifs before dinner.  I brushed a slice of french bread with my homemade pesto, garnished each slice with a sliver of roasted tomato and topped with a kalamata olive. These tomatoes should be a staple in every kitchen.
