- 8 ripe tomatoes
- 350 g Bella tomatoes
- 6 garlic cloves, crushed
- 6 bay leaves
- 2 cups cream
- 2 x 400 g cans butter beans, drained
- 8 anchovies, finely chopped
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Place the tomatoes in a baking dish. Add the remaining ingredients and mix gently. Bake for 45 minutes, or until golden.
Cook's note: The robust sweet flavour of roast tomatoes combined with the umami of anchovy and earthiness of butter beans is irresistible. Add cream for hero status.
