Preheat oven to 400°F.

Layer tomatoes (cut side up) in a baking tray.

Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt & ground black pepper.

*Pro Tip 1: If your tomatoes are not in season, sprinkle a little sugar on the tomatoes to help them caramelize better.

Place baking tray in the oven’s middle rack.
