  4. Discard pulp.
  5. Turn tomatoes upside down on paper towel to drain.
  6. In a saucepan, heat oil, parsley, scallions, garlic, and breadcrumbs.

  8. Place tomatoes in well oiled casserole dish.
  9. Fill with stuffing.
  10. Top each with a tablespoon of cheese.
  11. Brush tomatoes with oil.
  12. Bake for 45 minutes or until cheese is golden brown and tomatoes look done, baste with oil occasionally or when needed.
  13. Note: as many people have noted these can be very dry depending on what type of breadcrumbs you use or how long you cook them. I would recommend adjusting the amounts according to what you have read or personal preferences.
