Great recipe to serve as a lunch or entree as **Jubes** says. I think I should have left mine in the oven for another 5 minutes, but they still tasted very good anyway. I used mint leaves, but next time I am going to use basil, and also just a few more onions. I actually was able to fill 9 tomatoes with this recipe. A great easy recipe to serve with a nice salad on a hot day. Thanks JUBES another great recipe to add to the list!
