This was delicious. I had dinner alone last evening and the tomato dish really hit the spot. What I had was the tiny Sunburst tomatoes (red and yellow) all ripe, plump and yummy. Being so small I couldn't clean the centers completely but I don't think the recipe suffered from it any. I added a bit of crumbled veggie sausage to round out the nutrition profile and taste as this was my whole meal. Used as a side you certainly wouldn't need to add any kind of protein, it's very tasty on it's own.
