Simply Sides 23 - Cheesy Roasted Tomatoes

I have noticed a trend that side dishes with cheese attract me the most...  This recipe will be no different!  I was scrolling through Pinterest and I saw a recipe for roasted Parmesan tomatoes.  I though to myself, I don't have fresh parm, but what if I use my shredded provolone and mozarella blend?  And instead of fresh herbs, which I also didn't have, use garlic salt and fresh cracked pepper to season them?  Do you know what the result was??? DELICIOUS!  They tasted just like crustless pizza.  Seriously, I would not lie to you.  This is a great recipe if you are eating low carb.  It's a great recipe for a fairly healthy snack or side dish.  It's a great recipe if you are looking for something super simple to make.  Frankly, it's just a great recipe in general!  It really satisfied a pizza craving I was having, without all the extra crust calories. Make this, you won't be disappointed!

Cheesy Roasted Tomatoes


  • 3 tomatoes on the vine, slice into 4 slices each (total of 12)
  • 4 oz shredded cheese (I used a mozzarella/provolone blend - highly recommend)
  • olive oil (about 1 tbs)
  • garlic salt (I use Lawry's)
  • fresh cracked black pepper

Preheat oven to 400.
Place tomato slices on foil lined baking sheet.  Sprinkle lightly with garlic salt and pepper.  Bake for 10 minutes. Then, drizzle lightly with olive oil. Top with cheese. Bake another 10 minutes til cheese is browned and bubbly.
