This sounjds so amazing for those less than sun-kissed tomatoes available this time of the year. Roasting brings out all the flavours!!!


Thee cherry tomatoes in your picture rival even the ones I find in Calabria: we never have that variety. They look so pretty. I'll try this recipe for sure: while I get some reasonable mozzarella at the Italian market, there is no way to find decent tomatoes, even in August, so they definitely need all the help they can get.


How creative Simona and delicious. What a pity we don't get so many different kinds of cherry tomatoes.

Simona Carini

Ciao Val. Once you start roasting cherry tomatoes, it is difficult to stop.

Ciao Caffettiera. Cherry tomatoes are very popular here and they come in many varieties with lovely names. I will write more about them once they appear at the market. They are sold either as a mix, as in the top photo, or as single variety, as in the top photo of the Italian version.

Ciao Ivy. I must say that the variety of cherry tomatoes we have here is great. Once the season starts at our local market, I will write more about the individual varieties, which have also interesting names.


I love insalata caprese, but I think I like the idea of roasting the tomatoes even more! This is just begging for a nice crust of bread.

Simona Carini

Definitely, Alicia. The roasting time is not that long and it goes by quickly as you get other dishes ready.

These colourful tomatoes look gorgeous and I like your idea of roasting them for the Caprese salad. Sounds delicious! and love learning about the expression fare la scarpetta :-)


Anche a me piace la caprese e la faccio proprio così ma a crudo! Proverò anche la tua versione. Sono passata per fare gli auguri al tuo blog!
Un bacione Kri

Hi Simona - sounds great, can't wait for those marvelous tomatoes.
Congratulations on the 4th anniversary of your blog...I've been a fan for years! Best wishes for continued success.
Bon Appetit and Buon Appetito!

Yum! I would love to have some of that salad, sandwiched inside some flatbread...


Non appena i pomodori saranno di stagione da noi, non mancherò di provare al tua insalata :D

Simona Carini

Thank you, Vanessa.

Grazie, Kris.

Thank you, Lori Lynn. I remember well when you started: we go back a long time ;)

Ciao Nate. I have a recipe that uses bread. I'll talk about it some time soon.

Ciao Milena. Spero che ti piacera' :)


particolarissimi i colori di questi pomodorini!

Simona Carini

Ciao Ancutza. La varieta' si chiama Isis Candy e il nome e' proprio adatto, dal momento che davvero sembrano delle caramelle.


hai reso davvero particolare la solita caprese...grazie mille per la ricetta :)

Simona Carini

Prego, Lo. Mi fa piacere che trovi interessante la mia ricetta.
