4 Roma tomatoes, halved lengthwise

6 tablespoons olive oil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

4 teaspoons minced garlic

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves

1 (14-ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained

1/3 cup dried plain bread crumbs


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

  3. Whisk 2 tablespoons of oil, 2 teaspoons of garlic, and 1/4 teaspoon of oregano in a small bowl to blend. Stir in the diced tomatoes. Season with salt. Spoon the oil mixture over the eggplants. Sprinkle the eggplants with salt and pepper.
  4. Stir the bread crumbs, remaining 2 tablespoons of oil, 2 teaspoons of garlic, and 1/4 teaspoon of oregano in another small bowl to blend. Sprinkle the bread crumb mixture over the Roma tomatoes.
  5. Bake until the vegetables are tender and the bread crumb topping is brown, about 30 minutes.
