Ingredients

2 cloves garlic -- minced and crushed to a paste
20 fresh basil leaves -- finely chopped
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup parmesan cheese -- finely grated
1 pound tomatoes -- 2 large
salt and pepper


Cut tomatoes in half crosswise and squeeze seeds out.


In a small bowl, combine the garlic paste, basil, olive oil, salt and pepper to taste, parmesan cheese and spoon the mixture into the tomato halves, fitting it into the little openings where there were once seeds. (I use a motar and pestle to make garlic paste and then add remaining ingredients and mix well).


Grill the tomatoes, flat side up, on a hot grill for 15-20 minutes or until they soften and you see them bubbling. Can also be broiled in oven.


Makes 4 side-dish servings.


Sue's Notes: I have also roasted in the oven when grilling was not available.

Notes

This is a great easy and tasteful side dish to compliment any main entree. Good with an omelet for brunch too! Enjoy!

A dash of local for every season
