What recipes do you make with San Marzano tomatoes?

I mainly make the usual recipes..nothing crazy, simple tomato sauce, amatricana sauce. Just wondering what else I can do with these GREAT tomatoes?? Thanks

  1. 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.

    1. They make good tomato soup.

      1. 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...

        1. Puttanesca.

          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!!

          2. Napoletana (-ish) pizzas.

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