DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Slice a thin piece from the rounded bottom of each tomato, so they sit upright.
  • Slice each tomato in half horizontally. Arrange the tomato halves, cut side up on a shallow roasting pan or rimmed baking sheet lined with foil.
  • Drizzle with the oil, then sprinkle on the salt and pepper.
  • Scatter the garlic over the tomatoes.
  • Roast until they're softened and warmed through, approx 15 minutes.
  • Mine took longer -- approx 25 minutes. Mean while, cut the mozzarella into 6- 1/2 inch rounds.
  • Using a spatula, sandwich each cheese slice between 2 hot tomato halves.
  • The heat of tomatoes will melt the cheese slightly.
  • Drizzle with the juices collected in the roasting pan and garnish with basil.
