Romas are the perfect tomato to roast because their moisture content is lower than most other tomatoes (grape tomatoes are great roasting tomatoes, too!) I will roast these, and keep them in the fridge for several uses – summer salsas, gazpacho, salad, pizza sauce, etc.

I created this recipe for Albertsons/Safeway,  and you can see it made here.  For many more healthy recipes, you can follow them on Pinterest here!


12 Roma tomatoes, diced into 3/4-1 inch pieces
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
1 teaspoon kosher salt
pepper to taste


1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  On a rimmed baking sheet combine tomatoes, 3 tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper by tossing together.
2. Bake for 40-45 minutes.  Remove from oven and let cool.
3. Place in desired storage container and drizzle additional tablespoon olive oil.  
Store in refrigerator until use.  

Prep time:  15 minutes
