About Pomodoro al Riso
Pomodoro al Riso is a perfect make-ahead dish. The assembly is simple, but it does take quite a bit of time in the oven. Many recipes call for par-cooking the rice, but I found the entire dish cooks beautifully as long as you tent the pan to steam the rice for the first part of the baking process.
It’s always best to start with ripe tomatoes. When tomatoes are in season locally, that’s not a problem. I buy vine-on tomatoes and put them in a paper bag on my countertop for several days to ripen them in the winter. Typically, I make these with Italian rice, but they will work with any rice you have on hand.
It is incredible how much better the stuffed tomatoes are the day after cooking. Chill them in the fridge overnight and let them stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.
