Baked Tomatoes with Basil and Parmesan


  • 3 large vine-ripened tomatoes cut in half
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh herbs (basil, parsley, marjoram, oregano)
  • 1/2 cup dry grated bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil


Preheat oven to 350 F. Put the tomatoes in a nonstick baking dish, cut side up. Combine the herbs, bread crumbs, cheese, garlic, salt, pepper and oil in a small bowl. Sprinkle each tomato with an equal portion of the mixture. Bake for 30 minutes or until crusty. Tomatoes will be soft yet hold their shape. Serves 6.
