Oven Roasted Tomatoes

Kung Hai Fat Choi, I hope everyone has a happy and prosperous year of the snake! Today I have been studying for my nutrition exam, the weather is beautiful and I should go out. But I am off to the fireworks and lion dance at the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club tonight and want get some studying done. I am going hiking tomorrow then having a barbecue tomorrow afternoon and don't want to feel to guilty about not studying on my days off.

For my Chinese new year post I have made roasted tomatoes, well its not very Chinese but they are red so I figure thats got to be lucky! I had a few to many tomatoes laying around that were getting a bit soft, so I decided to make some oven roasted tomatoes today.  You can use them in a variety of dishes like pasta, pizza, salad or just simply put them on a slice of toast. On top of my roasted tomatoes on toast I had some fresh basil and grated romano cheese.
