Delicious! I saved a step by mixing olive oil, salt, and pepper into the filling rather than drizzling it onto tomatoes first. I used rye bread crumbs, which looked like and had the texture of ground meat. My family and I are new to the vegetarian scene so this was a good transition recipe.

A nice side dish, easy to make and soooo tasty with all the fresh tomatoes and herbs. I used finely chopped red onion instead of shallots and fresh thyme along with the parsley and basil; sprinkled a little extra parmesan on top of the mixture! Yummy!

This is a light quick and easy lunch or side dish. I used #134615, 3 cloves garlic, added some fresh thyme. Skipped the salt. Thanks
