The greenhouse and gardens are full of tomatoes. If you want to try something new with tomatoes then put the tomatoes into the oven and you will get some new tastes. Usually Italians roast tomatoes and eat warm tomatoes too. It´s just so fantastic how these tomatoes taste when they are roasted in the oven and have some basil for the taste. It´s a perfect side dish for meat or fish.
