  1. Great appearance, lovely way to serve spinach (even spinach haters will love this recipe). Great flavor with the garlic onion tomato & spinach, Followed the recipe but cut back to 1 egg and sprinkled the top with parmesan cheese - A winner Kim Thanks for posting
  2. These were very good!! I scaled the recipe to half, just 2 tomatoes, 4 halves, except doubled the garlic and we also sprinkled parmesan on top. Great way to serve tomatoes and spinach, we will certainly do these again!! thanks for sharing.
  3. We are really coming to like stuffed tomatoes, these were no exception. I was generous with the stuffing, and hollowed out a good bit of the tomatoes to make room for the spinach! Easily prepared and good to eat, a hit! Thanks Kim! Made for Lucky 13 Vegetarian Swap
  4. Very good, to the crumb mixture I added in 1/4 cup parmesan cheese and cayenne pepper, also I uncreased the garlic to 6 cloves and used seasoned salt and lots of fresh ground black pepper, with those changes these were thoroughly enjoyed, thanks Kim!
  5. Needed something "else" to use bountiful garden tomatoes. I used a package of thawed frozen spinach (in retrospect, should have used swiss chard !) - and cooked it along with the onion and garlic. I made a shallow hollow in 4 EXTREMELY ripe tomato halves, and stuffed the spinach mixture inside. Topped with a scant handful of Monteray Jack cheese -(Parmesan would have been better) -- and baked for 25 minutes. made a tasty side for left-over pork tenderloin. Thanks for posting, Kim.
