  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, basil, cilantro, thyme leaves
  • 2 tablespoons grated mozzarella
  • Dried seasonings such as: thyme leaves, sage, oregano

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Slice tomatoes horizontally through  the center. Mix bread crumbs with Parmesan, salt and pepper and any other of the suggested  seasonings. Spread bread crumb mixture evenly over cut tomatoes. Spoon olive oil over tomatoes and place them in a shallow oven proof dish. Bake 20-30 minutes, depending on how ripe the tomatoes are.
