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!!

I thought these were pretty good. I was looking for a recipe that was vegetarian and did not contain rice. This fit the bill and I am glad I tried it. I did not have italian seasoned crumbs, so I just crushed some crackers and put in fresh rosemary, thyme, and basil. I also used 3 garlic cloves. Easy to put together. Thanks for posting.

We really enjoy stuffed tomatoes and these were no exception! I stuck to recipe, other than using fresh basil instead of the parsley, since I had plenty to use up! I also put some grated mozzarella on top of the breadcrumb mixture, which I now see is not in the directions, so why did I do that? seemed like a good idea at the time, I guess! Very good recipe and much enjoyed, Susie, thank you! made for Ramadan Tag, August 09

I made this for lunch because I had all the ingredients on hand. Except I substituted mozzarella for provolone and used homemade breadcrumbs. It tasted really, really good.

We all enjoyed these a lot! I had to use provolone and parmesan for the stuffing and then a cheddar/monterrey blend for the tops since I was short on cheese. I used the garlic, the more the better in my book. I did not have italian breadcrumbs, only plain so I just put in fresh basil along with the parsley. Also, I broiled them at the end for a few minutes which made them a bit crispy on top, yum:) My nine year-old son filled the tomatoes for me so this is a great recipe to let the kids help out in the kitchen!

We loved it! I used homemade bread crumbs seasoned with basil, oregano, parsley flakes, garlic powder, and onion powder. I included garlic, but I think next time I will probably saute it before adding it to the filling. I also substituted mozzarella cheese (on hand) and used non-stick cooking spray instead of butter in the pan. Thanks for a keeper - I've already had it twice in less than a week!

The gift of a basket of farm fresh tomatoes from a friend has me looking for recipes to enjoy them. Did not need to look far as my PAC child had this marvelous recipe. I made three changes to adapt these to the WW core program: changing the breadcrumbs to fine ground softened bulgur, used butter flavored cooking spray to prepare the pan, and used soy provolone. The results were marvelous - fresh, bright and flavorful. I loved the way the herbed stuffing matched the tomato and seemed to make their flavors even meatier and sweeter. These were so good this side became my dinner. Thanks!

I thought these were great, but my customers loved them even more. One said, "If you put these on the menu I would be here everyday just to eat one." Made these for the I recomend tag game July 08. Glad I did and thanks for posting the recipe.
