Roasted Parmesan Tomatoes

 

A little fresh Parmesan and a drizzle of olive oil turns tomatoes into the perfect side dish for any meal.  If you are grilling you can place your tomatoes right on the grill with your meat for an easy, delicious addition.  Of course fresh tomatoes from your garden {or neighbor’s garden} only make them more  wonderful, but any way you get them, you’ll love this combination.

 

Roasted Parmesan Tomatoes

tomatoes, halved horizontally
freshly grated Parmesan cheese
fresh oregano, chopped
fresh basil, chopped
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
extra-virgin olive oil

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Place tomatoes cut-side up on a baking sheet.  Top with cheese, herbs, salt and pepper.  Drizzle with olive oil and bake until the tomatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.

If you are grilling outside, you can place your tomatoes on the grill rather than in the oven.  Depending on how hot your grill is, they take about the same amount of time.
