      Tomatoes, pesto and cheese - always a winning combination in my book! Thanks for posting! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders 2009.

      As we have limited veggies here, I pounced on this idea with glee. I don't know why I've never thought of it before. The pesto was nice, I went easy on it, but I chose to pop some of the pulp back in to reduce the amount of cheese. The breadcrumbs literally did top it off beautifully. Didn't bother with the salt, and turbogrilled it for extra colour on the cheese. YUM! Made for Aussie Tag No.7

      Used cheddar since that's what I had and sprinkled the salt on the top (not sure when to add the salt). If you like pesto, you will like this.
