Garlic Tomatoes

What could be more delicious than grass-fed burger with garlic roasted tomatoes? We got the tomato recipe from attending a evening cooking class at FIG Cooking School in Hamden, CT.  What a great evening that was! The cooking class is a great bonding opportunity with family or friends.  The foods you get to enjoy are amazing!  See the recipe below for the tomatoes!
