What to do with tasteless tomatoes?

Blah - how can I not waste these but use them up? Soup? Sauce? Help?

Roast them to condense the flavor and then use them in sauces? Or dry them?

If you haven't done anything with them yet, just throw them in the freezer. Even better if you dose them in boiled water first to remove peels. Then just add to your next stew or soup.

Depends how much effort you want to put into them, and how much you have?

You could either do as someone already suggested, just toss them in a ziplock bag and stuff them in the freezer. Later can take them out and roast or cook 'em down or toss into spaghetti sauce.

Or, you could put them in a roasting pan and roast at a high heat like 450, with some garlic and onions. They'll cook right down and take on a lot more flavour. Then cool, pick them skins out, and puree into a sauce base.
If you want a more condensed flavor, don't cover the roasting pan, and the liquid will mostly evaporate. If you want more of the liquid and less of a roasty flavor, cover with tinfoil and then you won't lose all the juices.
Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.
