Sweet cherry tomatoes .......roasted to perfection......at kitchen! kitchen!

Sweet delicate cherry tomatoes roasted to perfection.
My patience was rewarded with this delicate, sweet and delicious
roasted cherry tomatoes.
2 containers of cherry tomatoes from Samaha's  farm (washed, rinse and dry)
4 cloves of garlic roughly chopped
Kosher salt and pepper
Extra virgin olive oil

Preheat oven to 350F
Place all the tomatoes in a roasting pan; sprinkle with salt, pepper, and a teaspoon of sugar then toss with 1/4 cup of olive oil.
Roast in the oven for 50 minutes.
45 minutes into the roasting, switch oven to high broil for 5-6 minutes to brown the tomatoes.
Let cool and drain to reserve all the liquid. Transfer the roasted solid tomatoes in a separate bowl.
Pour the tomato liquid that you drained into a deep pan - (correct for seasoning) and simmer to reduce until thick (about 15-20 minutes). Pour back the reduced thickened  tomato liquid into the bowl of roasted tomatoes and stir to mix.
Add roughly chopped basil leaves and enjoy on toasted baguette . (you may sprinkle some parmesan cheese on top).
Your patience will be rewarded with a rich and delicious tomatoes!!
Fantastic as a crostata, or pasta topping.
