Everything I have read indicates that you get more nutrition from tomatoes if they are cooked, so I like to find new ways to use them once they get really ripe and can be cooked in some way or other.


4 plum tomatoes, cut lengthwise in half
1/4 cup Italian dressing
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon chopped fresh herbs (basil, chives and/or parsley)

Heat grill pan on top of stove to medium-high heat. Place tomatoes, cut sides up, on the grill pan (spray it first with a little cooking spray). Drizzle the tomatoes with dressing, top with cheeses. Cook on medium heat until the mozzarella is melted and the tomatoes are heated through. Sprinkle with herbs and serve.


  1. Sounds delicious, can smell them already, will try them later. Thanks for posting.
