Sun-Dried Tomatoes Oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes come in a jar and need only to be drained before using. Sun-dried tomatoes are also available without the oil, usually in cellophane bags. You can substitute one type for the other. If you use ones with the oil, you will want to reconstitute them, see below.
Reconstituting Sun-Dried Tomatoes In a small pan, bring enough water to a boil to cover the dried tomatoes. Add the tomatoes, then remove from the heat and let steep in the hot water for about 5 minutes. Drain.
We suggest you look for a refreshing white wine to pair with this lively Italian-inspired. dish. A Pinot Grigio or a Galestro from Italy will serve admirably.
