Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

We hate, hate, hate to compare these to candy, because honestly these tomatoes are so much better, but they are sweet, small, and hard to stop eating. If you don’t gobble them all up, you can add them to lots of different dishes: pasta, a sandwich, a salad, or your favorite omelet.
