Roasted Tomatoes with Goat Cheese

I bought some beautiful vine-on tomatoes at the store this weekend and let them sit in my fruit bowl for a few days, untouched, just looking pretty.  I was really hoping they would stay that way....but wishful thinking gets me no where....

So, Sunday night rolled around and I wanted a super simple, flavorful side for dinner.  Tomatoes.  Had to do it.  I added some dried oregano, dried thyme, fresh garlic, drizzled with some good olive oil, topped with crumbled goat cheese, and baked for about 25-30 minutes.  Divine.  I love baked tomatoes, they just melt in your mouth.

Really, it couldn't get any easier than this.  Use the leftovers on a sandwich the next day, or pick at them right out of the tupperware container for the next two days like I did, ahem.

This one is a winner!  Enjoy!
