Roasted Tomatoes: Better than Canned

Food & Wine's senior recipe developer, Grace Parisi, is a Test Kitchen superstar. In this series, she shares some of her favorite recipes to make right now.

I remember the first time I tested a recipe for oven-dried tomatoes—it was eye-opening and (I thought) completely original, until I learned that my little Italian grandmother had been doing it for decades. There's really no mystery. You apply gentle heat to ripe tomatoes to remove some of the moisture and concentrate the flavors and then preserve them in oil for use in the winter. Canned tomatoes don't hold a candle to these silky, plump and intensely flavored filetti di pomodoro. SEE RECIPE »
