24 roma tomatoes, cut in half
4 small onions, chopped
1 heads garlic, peeled and chopped
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 heads of fennel (optional)
Salt and pepper
1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
2. Toss the tomatoes, onions and garlic into a large bowl, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss well and pour into a baking dish. Roast until they've caramelized a bit and shrunken, intensifying and concentrating their flavour, about 60 to 90 minutes. Stir briefly after 30 minutes or so.
3. Note: For even more flavour try roasting the tomatoes with a head of sweet aromatic fennel.
