Roasted Tomato Caprese Salad

6 roma tomatoes, halved with seeds removed

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon sugar



Sliced fresh mozzarella cheese

Fresh basil leaves

Sliced French bread (optional)

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Arrange the tomatoes on a lined baking sheet and drizzle with the olive oil. Sprinkle the sugar, salt and pepper over them and toss to coat. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the tomatoes are shriveled and starting to brown on the edges.

Allow the tomatoes to cool a bit. Arrange on a plate with the sliced mozzarella and basil. You can also layer the ingredients onto french bread to create a variation of bruschetta. All of it tastes good.
