Baked Cheesy Tomatoes

These tomatoes are soo good! And they're very quick to throw together. They would make a good side to any dish, especially pasta. We served them with a delicious London broil - we'll post the recipe for it soon. Use as much or little cheese as you like, of course the more, the better it tastes! I think Michael's halves might have also had a little extra olive oil too :) If you're cooking for two, you may want to use just 1 or 2 tomatoes, depending on how hungry you are. You can also save any extra halves in the fridge for the next night - just reheat them in the oven for about 5 minutes.


  • 4 tomatoes, halved horizontally
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 450° F.
  2. Place tomatoes cut-side up on a baking sheet. Top with Parmesan, oregano, salt and pepper. Drizzle with oil and bake until the tomatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.

If you did serve these with pasta, it would be like a healthy pizza. They sound great!

Superb idea! I made tomato provencal from time to time, next time I'll add a tad of cheese. I bet it's going to be delicious. Thanks for the idea.
Have a wonderful weekend.

i bake tomatoes all the time, but i have to say--i don't think i've ever topped 'em with cheese!! i think it's safe to say it'd be a vast improvement. :)
