There are a million riffs on slow roasted tomatoes. You find them in The Joy of Cooking, Sara Foster's cookbooks, Ina Garden does them, and on and on and on. Mine are a combination of any and all of these and it changes slightly each time I make them. You may use any size tomato from large regular down to cherry or grape - - I prefer the slices of large tomatoes - different color heirloom ones make for an interesting taste and hue. I also change up the herbs used depending on the season and what I have. This is today's recipe.
The cream cheese pie is an adaptation of one a friend does with caviar - I find the roasted tomatoes give the whole dish a more rustic, intense flavor. —Muffinj
