Definitely okay. The taste of the dish will be slightly different, but probably equally delicious.

Since sundried tomatoes have a concentrated flavor, I would use more fresh tomatoes. Is there a sauce involved with this recipe? You might want to add some tomato paste to get a rich tomato flavor.

You might consider oven-roasted tomatoes for the application. Easy to make, different flavor than sun-dried (a little olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper).

Was just going to chime in with ChefOno's exact suggestion. Oven (or "semi") dried tomatoes can take out the excess liquid and concentrate the flavour without getting the bitterness or leathery texture you can experience in sun-dried.

I'd also suggest trying a high quality sun-dried tomato - that can make a huge difference.
