Olive oil spray and fry
sage leaves 1 for each tomato half

Arrange the tomato halves face up on a greased baking tray. Put a couple of slices of garlic on each tomato and top with a sage leaf.
Squirt with spray and fry and season well
Bang in the oven until the tomatoes are slightly singed round the edges.
remove from oven and transfer the tomatoes, in a single layer, to a cool plate.
Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and leave to cool.
