Ingredients You'll Need

2 large beefsteak tomatoes
1/2 cup couscous

Toast pine nuts in a dry saucepan over medium heat, about 3-4 minutes or until fragrant.


Add oil to saucepan and sautee garlic until fragrant, about a minute.


Stir in chicken broth and couscous (broth will be the amount of liquid your couscous calls for, for 1/2 cup) and prepare according to directions.


When couscous is done, stir in fresh basil and the tomato pulp.


Stuff each tomato half generously with the mixture.


Mix breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese together. Sprinkle over tomatoes.


Bake for apprximately 20 minutes.
