I cannot get over how amazing tomatoes are when you drizzle them with some extra virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper, and allow them to dry in the sun, dehydrator, or oven. They become flavor EXPLOSIONS that are the very essence of the best pizza you've ever eaten. Trust me. But wait - don't trust me. Find out for yourself by doing it. You will not be sorry. They taste so delicious that all you need to do to make a meal is throw them on some noodles. Bam. You just made a mind-blowing tasty dinner that everyone will be jealous of. If they aren't envious, then they are definitely missing their sense of sight or smell.
