Ordinary tomatoes transformed into an extraordinary dinner dish! These Stuffed Tomatoes are filled with bread crumbs, Parmesan and fresh herbs, then covered with mozzarella and baked. Easy, flavorful and delicious!
Place an oven rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat to 400ºF. Spray an 8 X 8-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, onion, garlic, 2 tablespoons olive oil, basil, parsley, oregano, salt, and pepper.
Cut the tops off and hollow out the tomato by removing the pulp and seeds with a spoon. (I have a grapefruit spoon with a jagged edge that worked perfectly for this.)Dice the pulp and add it to the bread crumb mixture.
Gently mix the ingredients until they are well combined. Fill each tomato with stuffing and place in prepared baking dish. Drizzle each tomato with olive oil.
Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Place in oven and bake for 10-12 minutes.
If baked for longer than 12 minutes, the tomatoes will soften.
