Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. cut a very thin slice off both ends of each of the tomatoes to create 4 flat bottoms. Then cut each tomato in half.
  3. Use a melon ball scoop to remove the seeds and guts from the wide fleshy side of each tomato cup, creating just enough room to hold the filling.
  4. Season the inside of the tomato cavities with salt and pepper.
  5. In a small mixing bowl combine the ricotta cheese, lemon zest, cilantro, parsley, garlic, scallions and parmigiano-reggiano cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Add the egg yolk and mix thoroughly.
  7. Divide the filling among the 4 tomato cups, pushing it into the cavity with a rubber spatula or spoon.
  8. Drizzle olive oil into a baking dish. Arrange the stuffed tomatoes in the dish and bake for 15 to 17 minutes until lightly brown and cooked through.
