Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

2 cups cherry tomatoes, washed and dried
4-5 cloves of garlic, peeled and smashed
2 T olive oil
a pinch of red pepper flakes
a pinch of sea salt

Preheat oven to 350ºF
Toss tomatoes with olive oil, garlic, red pepper flakes, and salt. Spread out on top of a parchment covered baking sheet.

Bake until tomatoes have collapsed and are beginning to brown, 30-40 minutes. Discard the garlic before using.
