Thank you Dorothy for a exceptional recipe! Instead of cooking the mixture inside the tomatoes as you suggested, I cut a small piece of the core out and sliced the tomato into rings. I removed the seeds and put the tomatoes and the spinach mixture into a baking dish. The next time I make it I am going to add more spinach and cheese, bake it about 15 minutes and broil till it is crispy on top. My wife and I ate Lennie's mock wonton soup with this. We had a delightful dinner!! Thanks again!!
