Just wanted to do a quick post on a yummy and easy recipe I tried over the weekend for Baked Parmesan Tomatoes.
This is a great recipe for all of those tomatoes we get from our CSA. I love tomatoes, but no one else in my household is a fan which means I need to find creative and super easy ways to eat them on my own.
Baked Parmesan Tomatoes
2 beefsteak tomatoes, sliced into 1/2 inch horizontal slices
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon of oregano
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 450° F. Place tomatoes on a baking sheet. Top with Parmesan, oregano, salt and pepper. Drizzle with oil and bake until the tomatoes are tender, 15-20 minutes.
So I had a few modifications to the original recipe. I did not have any beefsteak tomatoes so I used roma. They were not nearly as large. In fact, they were a perfect bite size.
Another tip that I don’t think the initial recipe suggested, and maybe it was because I was using different tomatoes, was to lightly spray the foil with cooking spray. I did not; which resulted in my tomatoes sticking and then having to pry them off of the cookie sheet. They did not look very pretty….hence no photo. But honestly there was no need for real presentation since I was the one eating them I didn’t care. They may have looked pitiful, but they tasted wonderful!
If you try this recipe let me know what you think! Do you have any quick go to tomato recipes?
