Easy Peasy Tutorial - Roasting Tomatoes

This recipe/tutorial is one that comes from a friend of a friend's friend.
I scribbled it down at one point, lost it, and found it again.
Let me tell you, they are good!  I was glad to find this recipe.  So, here goes.  

Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.  You can find this at the grocery store.

You'll need about 3 pounds.  I bought these gorgeous romas at Sam's Club.  You'll need a knife for slicing and a knife for cutting.
Slice the tomatoes in half and scoop out the pulp.
As you prepare the tomatoes, preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Drizzle a small amount of olive oil on the tomatoes.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  You can add herbs of your choice.  Basil is great for flavor!

Bake the tomatoes at 375 for about 45 minutes.  When the time is up, raise the heat to 400 degrees and bake for about 20 more minutes.  Shut off the oven.  I think I let them sit in the oven for another 10-15 minutes.
Allow to cool.

Cool and enjoy.  I think I read that these tomatoes last a week in the refrigerator.  I know they last longer in the freezer, but most of the time, they don't make it to the freezer.  They are great low calorie snacks!
