Wonderful with all sorts of meats. If it's summer, and the tomatoes are truly good, I could make a meal out of just this, some bread and wine. This also works great as an appetizer.

Excellent! The breadcrumb topping is a lovely balance of flavors. Parmesan, garlic and herbs enhanced by the addition of balsamic vinegar. Off season, I buy "on the vine" tomatoes and put them in a dark cupboard for several days to ripen. I made the recipe using 6 medium size tomatoes but had enough crumbs for 8 medium. Fresh picked summer tomatoes would make this dish "over the top" delicious!
