    Napoletana (-ish) pizzas.

    Anyone have any suggestions what to do with the leftover juice they're packed in?

      Go for a simple quick pan sauce.

      Never for Italian American gravy unless you're rich. (I can't tell the difference between them and american tomatoes in a long simmered sauce)

        funny rockhopper!! You are right, I never use them in the "Sunday gravy"! :) I wish I was rich, though!!

        I roasted a sheet pan full of them, halved and drizzled with oil, for a few hours at 250 degrees. The idea was to then freeze them, but they were so delicious that my family and I basically stood there picking them off the pan with our fingers until they were gone. Now that farmer's crop is all done (sob), but it was a fine afternoon...

          They make good tomato soup.

            I use them in meatloaf, in an ovenbaked ratatouille with shallots, squash, i use the whole ones and just slice them thin.

            The whole ones actually hold up to being stuffed with cheese or meats. Great alternative to stuffed peppers.
