I know I spoke yesterday about my love for cooked onions and how that meant summer to me. But the other food that means summer to me is a cooked tomato. Slice it, bake it for 10-15 minutes with some Italian dressing and parmesan and I’m in heaven. Yeah, that’s a lot of Italian dressing and parmesan, but isn’t it worth it?
This dish couldn’t be simplier. Cut tomatoes in slices, brush with olive oil and salt and pepper. Broil for a couple of minutes, top with fresh basil. Done.
The basil is a great addition to my usual Italian dressing and parmesan.
Serve with roasted onions and you’ve got yourself a Bryan-free meal. And summer on a plate.
