My favorite alternative to salad! :) But, I add cheese & bake these in the toaster oven. I drizzle the tomato halves w/ olive oil, sprinkle on some shredded cheese - then top w/ the seasonings called for. Bake at 300 for about 5 minutes.

The cooking method itself is definitely worth trying again, and this was a pretty addition to the plate. However, even tho' I cut way back on the herbs this still was a little overpowering for my taste. In the future I will either use fresh herbs, or cut back even further on the dried. I used red, ripe tomatoes, as the Roma were only pinkish in my market, and sliced them about 1/2" thick, which was just perfect for both heating and serving them.

These tomatoes were great! Although they got even better when I added Mozzarella Cheese. There was enough herbage for four tomatoes, even better. These were fabuloso!! Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner!!! Complements any dish.
