BAKED GARDEN TOMATOES WITH CHEESE
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 3/4 pounds fresh vine-ripened or heirloom tomatoes, cut into
3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
1 cup (packed) freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup (packed) freshly grated Romano cheese
Two more ways to go: Add chopped fresh basil leaves and/or small
cubes of mozzarella cheese. Or use yellow and green tomatoes
with the red ones to add summer color.

tablespoons oil in heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add
garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add onion and
sauté until soft, about 6 minutes. Add tomatoes, reduce heat to
medium-low, and cook until beginning to soften, about 5 minutes.
Mix in chives; season with salt and pepper. Transfer tomato
mixture to prepared baking dish; sprinkle grated cheeses over.
Bake until cheese melts and begins to turn golden, about 20
Makes 6 servings.

This dish is great as a side, on toasted baguette slices, as a zesty omelet filling, or atop grilled fish. Make sure the bread is whole wheat and go easy on the cheese and
this is Sonoma!!!
