Various people use various temps according to the amount of roasting/caramelizing they want. I start at 400 and then turn down after a bit to 300. This is not an exact recipe, though I think there are some in this thread. I urge every one to try it out and experiment.

I do not bother with the aluminium foil lined pans.  I pile the halved/quartered tomatoes in the pan single layer and season as I wish (lots of fresh garlic usually) and roast in the oven until the volume has halved.  Then bag and freeze or can.
No oil?  I would have to freeze, haven't canned since 7th grade Home Ec!

It freezes very well. I doubt oil matters.

Time to relearn that skill!  Lots of help here on the forum.

Glad I saw this before I tried canning roasted tomatoes.
You know, you can simply roast the tomatoes in their skins, with nothing added. Roast tomatoes on grill or in broiler until skins begin to wrinkle and become lightly blackened in spots, turning to roast evenly on all sides. Remove from heat. Place roasted tomatoes in a paper bag and close tightly. Cool until tomatoes are easy to handle, about 15 minutes. Slip skins off tomatoes, cut in half, and remove seeds if desired.

Camprn - you said "Place roasted tomatoes in a paper bag and close tightly".
What? thinking  - I don't get that.  What is the purpose for this?

I am so glad I found this thread. I am going to (hopefully) have the best crop of tomatoes in years (hopefully) and for the first time ever, I am raising Romas and San Marzanos. They seem to be doing great and I was afraid I would have to can them. Now I know I can roast (I LOVE LOVE LOVE roasted veg!rahrah) so now I know I can freeze and use later. THANKS! way to go

Yolos - I'm not seeing an answer to your question from whenever it was...

The reason you put them in a bag (or bowl covered with plastic wrap) is to allow the steam to loosen the skins.  Like you can do with sweet peppers.  Leave them for 15 or 20 minutes.  MUCH easier to get the skins off that way.
