These Rosemary Garlic Roasted Cherry Tomatoes are simple to make and take just 10 minutes in the oven! They’re perfect as a pasta sauce, or over Eggplant/Chicken Parmesan as well. I love tossing them together with freshly cooked angel hair, or serving them with sausage and veggies from the grill. No matter how you choose to serve these, it’s a win with their incredible flavor and hint of garlic!

You probably know by now that I’m all about simplicity, and never more so than in the summer! When produce is at it’s peak, it tastes amazing all by itself, so I’ve been guilty of eating tomatoes plain right off the vine all summer long.

But… last weekend we went to this phenomenal Italian restaurant in Calgary (it’s called Mercato if you’re in the area), and they had semi-dried tomatoes in several dishes. If you haven’t had semi-dried tomatoes yet, well… they’re the best thing since sun-dried tomatoes – wait… they’re even better!

Semi-dried tomatoes are still moist enough not to be chewy like sun-dried tomatoes, and they retain some of their fresh flavor somehow. They’re a burst of revelatory flavor that’s best tasted because there-are-no-words!

These roasted tomatoes I have for you today are somewhere between fresh from the vine and semi-dried – they’re juicy, incredibly flavorful, and super quick to make.

Not only that, but they double as a sauce for pasta or a topping for risotto! One of these days, I’m going to try my hand at actual semi-dried tomatoes because I think they would be an ideal way to preserve the summer bliss!

Now let’s jump right in and make these Rosemary Garlic Roasted Cherry Tomatoes step by step!

The key to this recipe is quality tomatoes – fresh from the vine, or from a local farmer’s market. If you can, try to find cherry tomatoes that aren’t hydroponic – the flavor just doesn’t compare! I used a mix of Yellow Pear, Sungolds, and Sweet 100’s.

I cut the garlic into thin slices to perfume the dish rather than the sometimes overwhelming punch you get from minced garlic. For the rosemary roughly chopped is fine – some small pieces mixed in with some bigger ones.

Toss the clean tomatoes together with the garlic slices, chopped rosemary, sea salt, and olive oil. I like to toss mine together right in the baking dish because I hate doing any extra dishes!

Then simply roast for 10 minutes and you’re done!

The cherry tomatoes get roasted just until they burst – they’re heady with flavor and fabulous with just about anything! I even used them one night as a sauce with Grain Free Eggplant Parmesan.

It was a nice flavor change having the rosemary in there instead of the usual basil! And if you’re looking for more recipes using tomatoes, definitely head on over to the recipe index.

  1. Kari I just think we must share some taste buds because every recipe you post uses ingredients that I just love love love. You managed to combine my 3 favorite ingredients of all time, cherry tomatoes, garlic and rosemary (my first love always!!!) What a great way to use up the last of my cherries in an enjoyable and awesome way. And I actually have sungold cherry tomatoes, planted them for the first time this year! I just love the red and yellow combo, don’t you just love eating and devouring pretty and nutritious food? Who need additives for color, bleh!

    • Produce from the garden is always so vibrant you’d never need to add color – it sometimes even looks fake in comparison to grocery store produce! I’m totally crazy about sungolds – I made an easy tomato salad of them last night with basil, sea salt, and a drizzle of reduced balsamic and olive oil – so good!

  2. Semi-dried tomatoes are, hands down, one of the best things ever. I think I even prefer them to regular sun-dried tomatoes. Not as chewy and gluey and they retain a bit of crunch that I do find quite enjoyable.

    BTW loving these roasted tomatoes, an easy, quick but delicious recipe!
