Recently my neighbor graciously gave me an entire bag of tomatoes from her backyard garden (Thank you Amy!). I sat on those tomatoes for days without a thought, and then one morning I turned on the tele and there was the Barefoot Contessa herself Ina Garten making Roasted Tomatoes with Pesto.
So first off just to let you know, I am a pesto addict, second of all I am not one to let food go to waste. So I decided to get up right then and there and create this seemingly simple yet tasty dish. Luckily I had all the needed simple ingredients already in my kitchen. Tomatoes, pesto, Parmesan cheese, olive oil, oregano, salt and pepper and in my case I added bacon, because we all know everything tastes better with bacon! I even added some to a hamburger and it is a winner! Try these quick and simple bites at your next get together or add them to a burger to make it extra tasty, I assure you, you will not be disappointed!
