Looked a bit unappealing (quite a bit squishier than the photo and the balsamic made them look "grubby"). Very tasty though and so easy.

This recipe is absolutely fantastic! I was looking for a good roast tomatoe recipe (and of course anything British is incredible) so I found my way here. This was great with a small bit of boursin herb cheese over them fresh out of the oven. We were also thinking of blending them into a fresh pasta sauce. Love, love, love it!

Smelled and tasted amazing, so yummy and juicy, and SIMPLE. Will definitely be using this as a regular side dish from now on.

One of our firm favourites now, beautifully intense flavour, and always on our plates when we have steak, but also beautiful with firm white fish and lamb steaks.

Love roasted tomatoes! Adapted this to make it breakfast friendly.

I did this as a side dish to serve with fish. It was so tasty and my guests loved it because it wasn't too heavy or overpowering. Would definitely do again and would also use as the basis for other recipes, as above.

So versatile as you can keep them in the fridge and put them in salad, tart, soup and so on. They taste fantastic with garlic and thyme.
