Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degree Celsius).
Prick the cherry tomatoes with a fork and place into a bowl. Emince the garlic and sprinkle over top. Remove the leaves from the basil stems (reserve the stems) and add one-quarter of the leaves to the bowl. Drizzle the tomatoes with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Toss to coat evenly.
Place onto a roasting tray and roast for approximately 20 to 30 minutes to concentrate/caramelize.
