If you like tomatoes- you will [i]love[/i] this dish! So good, that I served it with roasted asparagus and decided to postpone the main dish for another day. Serve this over toast with a green salad and a glass of Chardonnay and you will feel like you are eating in a Paris bistro.

These were wondrous; my hubby and I both thoroughly enjoyed them and will make them again. I didn't have swiss, so I used cheddar and added a bit of basil; the sauce tasted so good I could have (and did, if the truth must be known) eaten it straight... :)

Excellent. I am looking forward to the Beefsteak tomatoes coming out in August. They are a much meatier tomato and this will be even better on those.
