Baked Pesto Tomatoes

Baked Pesto Tomatoes created by Leggy Peggy

Desperate to find yet another way to use all the tomatoes from 4 plants, I found this in The Big Book of Casseroles. I used prepared pesto, but if you make your own, it is that much better. Had SO many, I shared with the neighbors, and even the young ones liked it. I used about 20 plum tomatoes and increased the remaining ingredients to match.

  • Drain tomatoes, cut side down on paper towels for 10 minutes.
  • Place cut sides up in 8x8 baking dish, coated with cooking spray.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • In a small bowl, combine pesto, cheese, onions, and parsley.
  • Spread each tomato half equally with mixture.
  • Bake at 350 degrees, uncovered until tomatoes are warmed through and cheese is melted, 8-10 minutes.
  • Do not overcook, as tomatoes will get mushy.
  • Leftovers reheat nicely.
