A Scrumptious Side to Enjoy
Add a special twist to your next main course with this savory side dish. This recipe tastes great and is a snap to prepare!

Stuffed Baked Tomatoes (Phase 1)

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes

Description
This warm, cheesy side dish pairs tomato and basil with mozzarella and Parmesan cheeseā€”a match made in heaven if there ever was one! Serve it with chicken, steak, or fish.

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients
4 plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise
3 ounces shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (1/2 cup)
1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh basil leaves
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 garlic clove, minced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions
Heat oven to 400° F.

Scoop out the inside of each tomato half with a melon baler and roughly chop the scooped pulp. Combine tomato pulp, mozzarella, basil, Parmesan, garlic, and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Place tomatoes, cut side up, on a baking sheet. Spoon in tomato mixture and bake until cheese is melted and lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Serve warm.
