Tomatoes with GarlicChoose firm tomatoes, ones which are ripe but not squishy, and use a very sharp knife to cut them horizontally across into thick slices, maybe 3 slices per tomato. You could also cut them in half for thicker ones. A good knife should be able to slice right through without leaving any of those amateur looking ragged edges.

Have the oven nice and hot when you pop them in and then serve them alongside your favorite meat, poultry or fish dish, or try them with rice or pasta, or else let them get cold and add them to a salad. There are all kinds of ways to serve these lovely tomatoes.
