I got this recipe from my old home economics cookbook. I had a look at the other stuffed tomato recipes but there was nothing close. This is an extremely simple & tasty side dish.

This made for a nice side dish. It had nice flavor but just seemed to be missing something for me. Nice and healthy though, which is always appreciated. Thanks for posting. Made for Zaar Staars.

Really enjoyed this recipe, as it is especially suitable for Weight Watchers. I didn't have parsley so used fresh basil which was wonderful with the other flavours in this dish. I'll return to this recipe often!
