Wash and drain tomatoes well. Pat dry with paper towels. In a nonreactive (such as earthenware) 2-quart baking dish place tomatoes in a single layer. Pour on olive oil so they are very well coated and there should be a thin layer (1/8 inch) of oil on bottom of dish. Toss in garlic, mint, salt and pepper. Bake, uncovered, for 45 to 60 minutes or until tomato skins split and soften but tomatoes still retain their shape. Serve hot, warm, or at room temperature. Spoon or mash over slices of toasted bread and serve with goat cheese. Makes 8 servings.
