Recipe by Heirloom
This is a recipe I got from iVillage. They are delicious! Plus baking tomatoes doesn't only make them scrumptious, it also brings out those healthy lycopenes and helps you absorb them more efficiently.

Thanks Heirloom! I'm not willing to wait until tomatoes are in season so I frequently get a fair number of hydroponic tomatoes with textures more like tennis balls. This recipe makes them taste almost like the genuine home grown, ripened in the sun variety. Rather than fire up the oven, I used my toaster oven and the tomatoes were done in a jiffy. This is a quick, easy side dish I'll use often.
- 4 tomatoes, halved horizontally
- 1⁄4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- fresh ground pepper
- 4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
