Substituting canned tomatoes for fresh?
I have many cans of high quality whole tomatoes that will expire this year. Can I use these canned tomatoes instead of fresh? February in the Northeast is not high season for amazing fresh tomatoes anyway. Thank you!

The liquid may be more than the fresh tomatoes give off, so I'd drain it and add the canned tomatoes alone to the dish. Add tomato liquid as needed, at the beginning of roasting and/or when you check it near the end.
If you have leftover tomato water, save if for smoothies or soup.
