Whole Roasted Tomatoes

When you spot a good deal on plum tomatoes, buy a bunch. Roasting preserves them for later use and maximizes their sweetness. Use roasted tomatoes in Roasted-Tomato Pasta with Basil, Beef and Tomato Stew, and Spiced Tomato Soup.

    Make sure if you make this wonderful recipe, that you DO NOT use an aluminum pan. Use a coated ceramic baker or pyrex. The aluminum pans will give a metal taste to the roasted tomatoes. I learned this hard way.
