Slow-Roasted Tomatoes

Seasoned with oregano and cheese, Martha Chayet's tomatoes take on a wonderfully intense flavor as they roast in the oven. "Serve these warm as a side dish," she suggests from her home in Manchester-by-the Sea, Massachusetts. "They are very nice with grilled chicken. This dish is good year-round-even in winter, when tomatoes aren't at their best."

    I've made this recipe several times. It's a great way to make tasteless supermarket tomatoes really pop with flavor.
