Easy Recipes: Cheesy Roasted Tomatoes

Sharing is caring!

Vine ripe tomatoes have been on sale at my grocery store a lot lately. This is the time of year I really start craving tomatoes with our dinner. I like them in a salad, as part of a sauce and also as a side dish. (And I did not like tomatoes as a child, did you?)

Here is a super easy recipe that went perfectly with a pasta and chicken dinner we had recently. Three to four whole tomatoes really can go a long way when you slice them, season them and roast them in the oven.

Below is the recipe.

  • 3-4 medium-large vine ripe tomatoes, sliced
  • 2-3 T olive oil
  • 1-2 T Italian Seasoning
  • 1/2 c Italian blended cheese, shredded

Place your tomato slices on a cookie sheet about half and inch a part from one another.

Drizzle them with olive oil. 2-3 T should be enough for all of the tomatoes.

(I like to cover my cookie sheet with parchment paper to make clean up easier.)

Sprinkle each slice with a few shakes of Italian Seasoning.

Top each tomato with your favorite shredded Italian blend of cheese.

I used a Mozzarella and Parmesan blend. It was perfect.

Pop it in the oven on 450 degrees for 15-20 minutes, until the cheese is bubbly and brown.

Look at how amazing those tomato slices look.

Serve 2-3 slices as a side on each plate.

These went perfectly with a Chicken Marsala recipe we made recently.
