“Roasted stuffed tomatoes work best with the firm, dry Italian plum (often called Roma) tomato. Salt the tomato shells, then let sit upside down for 30 minutes to drain off excess liquid before stuffing.” - by USA WEEKEND Pam Anderson
Original recipe yields 12 servings
- Sprinkle tomatoes with salt and turn, cut side down, to drain for 30 minutes on a wire rack set over a cookie sheet with a rim. Meanwhile, warm a small skillet over low heat. Add pinenuts; saute, stirring constantly until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes.
- Adjust oven rack to center position and heat oven to 325 degrees. Mix feta, cream cheese, olives, pinenuts and oregano in a medium bowl. Turn tomatoes cut side up and fill with about 2 Tbs. of the feta mixture.
- Bake until tomatoes are soft but still hold their shape, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and brush with oil. Serve hot, warm or at room temperature.

"A friend made this recipe before I had tried it myself and it was fabulous! A few weeks later I made it myself and not only was it easy to prepare, but it turned out great! I got so many compliments..." See more on it and even passed out the recipe to a few more friends."
"I had to improvise on this one, based on what I had on hand. I used on the vine tomatoes and a mix of black and green olives, because I didn’t have kalamatas. My oven was already going at 350 degree..." See mores, so I used that temperature and baked these for only about 15 minutes. I just wanted to warm them through and didn’t want them turning to mush. These were very good, but probably would have been a little better with the kalamata olives. I’ll use those next time. I also toasted my pinenuts in the oven at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes, until golden. I think that’s easier and you don’t have to stir constantly for 3-4 minutes as indicated in the recipe. I’ll make this again!"
