Vegetables & Side Dishes
Contributed by: JANET ASHBY
Two medium ripe tomatoes
Salt and pepper
Fresh basil, chopped
1 cup grated cheese
1 cup freshly grated bread crumbs (white or whole wheat)
1 small onion, peeled and finely chopped
Wash tomatoes, cut tops off and remove the flesh and seeds. Discard seeds and core, but put the flesh in a medium bowl.
Add breadcrumbs, cheese, salt, pepper, onion, basil and parsley to the tomato flesh and mix well. Fill empty tomatoes with the mixture, and sprinkle more salt and pepper to taste over the top.
This can be eaten cold as is, or put under the broiler for a few minutes.
