Remember how a long time ago I used to harp all the time about how you just really really REALLY need to make roasted tomatoes for every single event in your life because they're delicious and it's a nice way to give people good food while making them like you?
If you did that, good!
If not, I warned you...it's the fastest way to admiration.
And, it's easy and totally not admiration-worthy.
You can also put the cooked tomatoes in a food processor and grind them up. Then, add a little more olive oil and some fresh parsley and BAM - roasted tomato dip!
I love the tomatoes both ways, but I have found that they are a bit easier to maneuver when ground up than when they're whole. They are prettier when they're in large chunks, though....so it's a give and take.
Either way you roll, don't forget about this appetizer. It's a winner every time and I rarely leave home without it.
The original recipe is here - I used fresh tomatoes, but mostly I use canned ones and they work beautifully!
I mean, when I'm going to some sort of a party with food.
You know what I meant.
