Author Notes: A winter tomato recipe. The herbs are optional but highly recommended; use a single herb or any combination. Nicholas Day

Serves: 4
Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 2 hrs 20 min

  • 2 28-ounce cans of whole peeled tomatoes
  • 1 head of garlic, with the cloves peeled and smashed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 sprigs fresh basil, thyme, or rosemary (optional)
  • 1 1/2 cups farro
  • 1 handful Parmesan cheese
  1. Heat the oven to 300° F. Drain and roughly chop the tomatoes, then toss with the olive oil, garlic, and optional herbs. Salt to taste. Spread the mixture in a large baking dish or a rimmed half-sheet pan -- the more cramped it is, the longer it will take to roast -- and roast for approximately 2 hours, turning occasionally, or until the tomatoes are sweet and rich and just beginning to dry out.
  2. Bring a pot of salted water to boil. Add the farro and cook it until al dente. Drain the farro and then toss it with the roasted tomatoes and garlic; add more olive oil if necessary. Shower with Parmesan cheese and serve.
