Cherry Tomato Confit: Method

  1. Preheat oven to 250°F. Arrange Mutti® Cherry Tomatoes (Ciliegini) in a 9 x 13-inch baking dish, making sure to spread out evenly. Drizzle with olive oil and stir in the garlic and herbs. Season liberally with the salt and pepper.
  2. Roast for about 2-1/2 hours or until tomatoes are soft and bursting open. Spoon onto toasted bread slices. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks.


  1. Roasted Tomato Pasta: Roughly chop Cherry Tomato Confit and combine with hot cooked pasta and toss to coat. Garnish with freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano and thinly sliced fresh basil.
  2. Use in salads in place of fresh tomatoes or make Roasted Tomato Vinaigrette by combining chopped Cherry Tomato Confit with a splash of balsamic vinegar and chopped fresh herbs. Adjust seasoning with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
