Neapolitan Baked Tomatoes With Basil & Parmesan

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Heather3271

From A Taste of Italy (1996) by The American Cooking Guild: "Late-summer tomatoes are intensely sweet and taste great. Serve the baked tomatoes as a side dish or chop into coarse pieces and toss with 1/2 pound of cooked thin spaghetti. Season with salt, pepper, and extra grated cheese."

Yum! Great simple recipe for this cooking novice! Made two baked tomatoes with intention on eating half of one, and using the other 1 and a half with pasta - gobbled them all up as a nice summer meal! Thank you!
