Ingredients:

  1. 5 large tomatoes 1 c. olive oil 1/2 c. freshly grated Parmesan Cheese 1/2 c. bread crumbs (plain or Panko) 1/4 c. freshly chopped Parsley

Directions:

    1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Cut the tomatoes in half and scoop of the seeds with a spoon. Nestle each half, cut side up, in a baking dish.
    2. Drizzle the tomatoes with the olive oil and pat around them to make sure they are nicely coated.
    3. Mix the breadcrumbs, cheese and parsley together in a bowl. Pat even amounts into each tomato. Bake for 25-30 minutes until the tops are golden brown and the cheese is slightly melted.

    Variations and Ideas: Other herbs like thyme, rosemary or basil would be delicious in this. It would also be great if you wanted to mix the herbs make flavors all your own.

    Note: My daughter would only eat hers after I'd cut it up and tossed it with pasta. But my husband and I devoured them just as they were!
