How 'Bout Them (Roasted) Tomatoes? - Easy

So I had this pint of grape tomatoes on my kitchen counter, which I purchased to go with the salads I was serving this past week.  Several days (and salads) later, I still had that pint of grape tomatoes on my kitchen counter.  Just kept forgetting to toss a few on every salad heading out to the dining table.  Tomatoes keep only so long, and these were in danger of becoming compost food, which begets tiny tomato seedlings in the garden the following year.  Those seeds never seem to become inert from the heat generated by the pile.  Which is inconvenient when those seedlings pop up exactly where I don't want, like amongst the marigolds.  By the way, did you know that in colonial times, tomatoes were considered poisonous and were grown as ornamentals?  But I digress ...

Anyway, Nina from Kosher in the Kitch must have read my mind (or else peeked into my kitchen window).  Just as I was wondering what to do with the tomatoes, she went and posted a recipe for roasted grape tomatoes!  …
