Roasted Grape Tomatoes

I'll be completely honest with you guys, I am not a huge fresh tomato fan. I'm the dork that takes them off of everything, especially sandwiches because I don't love the texture and think they lack flavor...

With the exception of three things: salsa, grape tomatoes and roasted tomatoes.
I absolutely love grape tomatoes because they're bite-sized and usually have good flavor. I will also eat any vegetable that has been roasted and tomatoes come out beautifully when they're roasted.

So the combination of grape tomatoes and a little roasting action in the oven is pure bliss in my book.
These would be perfect on a pizza, in a salad, eaten with some fresh mozzarella and balsamic or my personal favorite with pasta. Particularly some AMAZING pasta that I'm going to share with you tomorrow. It's life-changing you guys. But seriously.

So stay tuned for an incredible summer pasta recipe coming your way!
