Usually for Weekend Menu Planning I find five interesting recipes using a seasonal ingredient and suggest you put one of them on your menu. This week however, Mata has reminded me It's Time for Those Addictive Slow Roasted Tomatoes, and since the window for roasting tomatoes is quite short I'm going to entice you to spend the weekend roasting tomatoes, including so many good recipe ideas for slow roasted tomatoes it will take you weekend after weekend of tomato roasting to try them all.
If you're not a slow-roasted tomato convert yet, I'm hoping one of these delicious recipes will be the one that puts you over the edge. Of course if you're already feeling the roasted tomato love and have good ideas for using them, please share your recipe or a link in the comments!

About the Tomatoes:
You can make slow roasted tomatoes with any kind of tomatoes, but there's no doubt that the meatier Roma type of tomato is best. These are sometimes called "paste" tomatoes or "sauce" tomatoes, and if you don't have a garden, you should be able to get them at your local farmers market. Slow roasted tomatoes keep well in the freezer, so buy as many tomatoes to roast as you can manage to get home.
