Once you’ve tasted the concentrated flavor of fire-roasted tomatoes, you’ll want to use them all the time. This recipe is a quick alternative to prepared pasta sauces that are often loaded with sodium and sugar. To substitute whole fire-roasted tomatoes, simply cut the tomatoes in the can with kitchen scissors before using.
