      I've seen a couple mentions of people trying this recipe and they just raved and then I really wanted to try it. I thought our tomatoes were done for the season and that I'd have to buy tomatoes to make it...in fact, I asked Lorac about a method she uses to improve store bought tomatoes (over in the message and thank you board) thinking I would have to try this recipe with them. Not so...DH and I went for a walk in the yard a couple days ago and found we have a few really nice sized tomatoes that frost hasn't gotten yet and they were ripe! since they were larger than medium size, I used 3 and kept the rest of the recipe measurements the same. I didn't have fresh spinach, but found in a substitutions resource that beet greens can be substituted, so I headed back out to the garden and collected some of them. This was absolutely delicious. I shortened the baking time by about 5 minutes and the tomatoes were warmed and just slightly softened, but not cooked through. This tasted like we were eating a BLT without the bread...yummy. DH and I each had one and I packed the other in a lunch tray to send over to my MIL (She's 73, and a widow, so anything that I feel will reheat well, I use to make TV dinners for her to throw in the microwave).

      I made this at work today, but I made it slightly differently-same ingredients, just a different presentation. Also multiplied the recipe by nearly 3. I cored the tomatoes, and cut them in half (around the equator), I lay 16 halves in my baking tray, spread over half the filling mix, some cheese, then repeated all that. I then cooked them in the oven til the cheese was golden brown. Excellent.

      Loved this. I even had 2 leftover and reheated them the next day. It was still great. Used some of the hot sauce that I was sent in the food swap and added a little bit more than was called for, still great. Thanks for posting it. I never knew that I liked cooked whole tomatos before I tried this.
