Hey guys -need your opinions!! I'm making Alysha's marinara this morning and have a large can of Muir Glen's Fire Roasted Tomatoes.... I saw in a thread about the tomatoes that Gracie didn't like them in the sauce... Anyone else try it? Don't want to ruin my pot of sauce!!;) Thanks!!

I made it last week with two cans of plain and one can of fire roasted, and it came out fine. I don't think I'd use all fire-roasted though - it would probably be too smoky for my taste.

It is a little less "fresh" tasting with the fire roasted than with the regular. I think it depends on if you prefer a fresher flavor or a deeper, richer flavor. We use them quite a bit in the mix, but our family sauce is richer than lindrusso's sauce.

I decided to use the fire roasted in the Fire Roasted Tomato Bisque instead. I have some half and half to use up - and I'll half the recipe!

Hi. I have never tried them myself, but I think I remember someone trying them with this recipe and they thought the sauce tasted "burned". Or is it "burnt"? :D

I was about to offer my opinion and saw that you'd already read it! :D When I made with all fire-roasted tomatoes it tasted burned and burnt! :D
I'm way to gun-shy to try it with some fire-roasted and some not. I've been really happy using the fire-roasted in anything Mexican.

I use the Muir Glen Fire Roasted tomatoes all the time in Alysha's marinara. As for tasting burnt :confused: , not in my opinion! I think it adds more depth of flavor. As for tasting less fresh...it's cooked at least 2 hours it's not going to taste like a fresh sauce regardless of what canned tomatoes you use.

Hmmmm... well this pot has just regular tomatoes but maybe next time I'll try it. Sneezles, do you use all 3 cans of fire roasted?
