bellagio cooking class: roasted tomatoes

This is a very simple recipe that's delicious tossed with cooked pasta, or truth be told, eaten on its own with a fork ;-)

We used more of those lovely Sicilian grape tomatoes...

salt
oregano
olive oil

Slice the grape tomatoes in half and place them face up on a baking pan lined with parchment paper.  Sprinkle them with salt and oregano and bake them at 180 degrees (350 Fahrenheit) for 45 minutes or until they wrinkle.  Pour a bit of olive oil over them, cover, and let them rest.

The simplicity of this dish is the essence of what I love about Italian cuisine.  Simple ingredients, simple techniques, amazing flavor, and a laid back quality that lends itself to leisurely meal with a good bottle of Italian Red... our favorite is Amarone!

Our final dish was Tiramisu, but someone (I'm looking at you, Robert!!!) ate it before I had a chance to photograph it!
