Aka how to make sad, out-of-season grocery store tomatoes taste amazing.

While peak tomato season has ended, the good news is that store-bought tomatoes can still taste delicious year-’round by roasting them. This simple method makes a world of difference in their flavor, enhancing the natural sweetness and creating a quick sauce for pasta. It’s made even better with the brightness of lemon, some spicy chiles, and lots of Parmesan.
