Roasted Basil Cherry Tomatoes

roasted basil tomatoes by

My tomato plants have been bursting! I have cherry tomatoes coming at me from all directions! I love them in salads. My kids eat them raw, but sometimes I like to actually do something with them. Coincidentally my basil is also getting out of hand.

The result is a simple and satisfying side.
