We don’t mean to burst tomatoes’ bubble, but when you literally burst tomatoes in the oven, they become all the more delicious. And while we hate to imagine them straining, seizing, and shriveling under that sizzling heat, they come out on the other side with a flavor that’s concentrated and juicy. It allows them to hold their own against the assertive flavors in this dish, from briny feta cheese to grassy green asparagus.
