Without knowing how many tomatoes to use, I settled on 7 medium-sized beauties. The end result was a tad over-seasoned; I think about 10-11 tomatoes of this size would have been perfect for me. I baked them for 6 hours and they were still a little wet to the touch, so I put them in the dehydrator overnight on a low setting and they came out nice. I had them in a pasta and prosciutto with arugula pesto last night and we both had seconds. Oh, the aroma... ~*inhales deeply*~ YUM! :) Thanks for the lovely recipe!

These were very easy to make and very tasty! It doesn't say how many tomatoes to use, but I used about 5. I also didn't have the fresh spices on hand so I used about 1 tsp of garlic salt, 1 tsp basil, and 1 tsp of oregano, put them together in a ziploc baggie and ran my rolling pin over it a few times to make the spices extra fine. Anyway, this was a great way to use up some extra tomatoes and I will definitely make again!

Another great review for a great recipe! I put all the "cleaned" tomato pieces in a big bowl and drizzled with the olive oil and seasonings, then laid them out on the foil lined cookie sheet (quicker for me). Loved the aroma in the house while these were baking and they are so good. Put the pieces in small baggies for the freezer for future use also. (This is an experiment on my part - I have never frozen sun dried tomatoes.) Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

Perfect. Easy, taste is wonderful, a snap to make! Wonderful way to use up my extra tomatoes. I have the extras in olive oil in the fridge. I had to use dried seasonings, because I didn't have any fresh on hand. I will definitally be making these again!

Delicious! I had a bunch of campari tomatoes that i had to use up or else. So, i just drizzled and sprinkled ingredients (no fresh basil or oregano, so used dried) to what i felt "looked" right/good. Also, I was short on time, so i adjusted temp of oven to 250 to cut down on cooking time (i guess it took me about 3 hours for my batch). Turned out delicious (even the few that were a little overdone). They are so good, we've been eating them like potato chips...but next time, will be sure to keep some on hand for recipes, etc. So yummy...thank you!

This was a vary easy recipe. I used three different types of cherry tomatoes (yellow pear, sun sugar, and red cherry) and a food dehydrator instead of the oven they took about 12 hours to dry. They turned out awesome and we ended up doing about 2 gallons of tomatoes.

I have a large abundance of Roma tomatoes this year and this recipe helped us use them up. Very easy to do and my kitchen smelled wonderful. I love using fresh herbs and garlic on these. Thanks!

This is an outstanding recipe that is a great solution for using up tomatoes when you have far too many! Of course, you can just buy tomatoes specifically to have dried tomatoes on hand. The herbs, garlic and olive oil add good flavor. I'll be making this during the summer when my tomatoes are yielding their fruits (should be a lot!).
