I saw this recipe on Everyday Italian with Giada De Laurentiis and enjoyed it. It is such a tasty way to use fresh garden tomatoes during the summer months and very easy to make.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Cut the tomatoes in half, horizontally. Seed by gently squeezing the tomato halves. Use a small spoon to gently hollow out the inside of the tomatoes, being careful not to puncture the outer shell. Reserve the pulp.
  3. Chop the reserved pulp and put in a medium bowl. Add the parsley, bread crumbs, cheese, optional garlic, and pepper and mix gently to combine.
  4. Place the tomato halves in a buttered casserole dish, and fill with the bread crumb mixture.
  5. Drizzle the top of the tomatoes with olive oil. Bake until the tops are browned, about 20 minutes.

These lovely tomatoes were as tasty as I had expected. DS left an open package of shredded "Italian Blend" cheese here a little while back and I used some of that. They were wonderful with some homemade bread sticks I had in the freezer and grilled chicken breast. :D

I made this for a light lunch. I made the recipe as written, and this was very lovely. This would make a great side dish for a nice grilled piece of meat. I will make these again!!
