“You can also use the little, yellow, pear-shaped tomatoes for this recipe, and feel free to use minced tarragon or chervil instead of basil.” - by RNCOGGINS
Original recipe yields 24 stuffed cherry tomatoes
- In a medium-sized bowl, combine the cheese, basil, salt and pepper. Mix with a fork until well blended.
- Cut the top off each cherry tomato. Using a small spoon, carefully scoop out the pulp to make a hollow, yet sturdy, shell. Drain off any juice that may be in the tomato shells.
- Using a small spoon, scoop about 1 teaspoon of the cheese mixture and carefully stuff into a tomato shell. Repeat until tomatoes or cheese mixture is used up. Arrange the filled tomatoes on a platter to serve.

I did take o..." See morether reviewers advice and did not use any salt and it was a good thing I did. It would have been way too salty otherwise. I also used a combination of feta and crumbled blue cheese for added flavor."
