Baked parmesan tomatoes

For how simple these were, I can't believe that they stole the show for our Valentines dinner. Justin was popping them from the minute they came out of the oven, on the way to the table, during dinner, and cleaned up the plate afterwards.  I was amazed at how much flavor can come out of a tomato...I mean, they've always been a favorite of mine but roasting them like this just brings them to a whole 'nother level.  You have no excuse not to try these, they took like 3 minutes to prepare, they're not bad for you, and they're just so dang good!!!

4 tomatoes, cut into thick slices
1/4 cup fresh parmesan cheese
1 t chopped fresh oregano
freshly ground salt and pepper to taste
4 t olive oil

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place tomatoes on a greased baking sheet and top with parmesan, salt, pepper, oregano, and drizzle with olive oil before baking for 15 minutes, or until tender.
