Very tasty! I loved it! I used 1 large tomato for the 2 of us and it needed to be cooked for 25 minutes in order to be cooked sufficently. Wonderful! Excellent side dish.

I had one large tomato to cook for the two of us. It took about 20 minutes to cook. Worth every minute! We really enjoyed this simple way to make a tomato very tasty! The Parmesan cheese gave a good bite to it. We'll be having these a lot this summer.

I thought this was quick and easy to make and a nice side dish. Really watch the baking time - my tomatoes weren't that large but they needed to be cooked a bit longer. When tomatoes are at their peak this summer I plan to makes these a lot. Thanks for sharing.
