Pesto Parmesan Baked Tomatoes are delicious roasted tomatoes topped with pesto and shredded Parmesan cheese. So easy to make, only 3 ingredients!

There’s so many things I love about summer, and summer tomatoes are high on that list. For this recipe, the sweeter the tomatoes the better. I usually make my own pesto, but I had a jar of Delallo pesto I didn’t want to waste, and it was perfect.

How To Make Baked Tomatoes

Easy peasy, just slice the tomatoes, top with a little pesto and shredded parmesan cheese and bake in the oven. This would be yummy with Asiago or mozzarella as well. Serve them as a side with grilled chicken or fish, or even a simple pasta with garlic and oil.
Sometimes, I slice the tomatoes in four thick slices instead, which is perfect on crusty bread. Keep in mind doing so uses more pesto and cheese, so calories change. You can also something similar with chicken, tomatoes, pesto and cheese called Chicken Pesto Bake, so good!

  8. Just made this with harvarti cheese instead! Soo amazingly good.. I had two halves over some all corn thin chips cuz the tomatoes were really loosing their shape when I was taking them off the pan.. Maybe I cooked them too long but I think I took them out at 15 or 16 mins actually, maybe not long enough? Lol

  13. Do you think  these will work in a toaster oven?  Hate using  the oven in the Summer !

  14. So wonderful!  These are also just as great with salt, pepper, crushed red pepper and parmesan on top without the pesto too.  YUM!

  15. We cooked this on the grill & used fresh mozzarella instead of parmesian – DELISH!!!

  17. I made these when you posted them! They are delicious but I had to cook them a little longer because I think my tomatoes were bigger than the ones you used. I also added a little more of your pesto because it's so delicious I couldn't help myself!

  18. Super simple and a classic combo – basil and tomato always works. Looks great for a snack or with some pasta. Great work!

  19. Just had this – SO good! Thanks so much Gina!

  20. Yum! I'm very excited to try this recipe. Everything you post is always so yummy!

  21. I make this also and it's the very best thing I do with tomatoes this time of the year!!

    love it.

  22. Ooh it's almost like a margherita pizza without the base! Gotta try this when tomatoes are in season down in NZ!

  23. I love this! We're starting to get so many tomatoes in our garden that we don't know what to do with them (other than share, share, share) so this is perfect! Thanks for the recipe. 🙂

  24. I just made this and ate two servings for lunch, it was soooo good. Really easy to do too, I love recipes like this.

  25. These look like they'd be great appetizers if made with cherry tomatoes. 🙂

    • I have a friend who did the little larger size cherry tomatoes. Brought them to a party as a side dish/appetizer, and they were gobbled up. The addition of pesto (instead of the vinaigrette she used) would definitely take it up a level.

  26. Yum, I can't wait until my tomatoes turn! They are still green. Do you have any recipes for green tomatoes??? Thank you, Gina!

  27. We often do this with roasted red peppers on the BBQ, adding the pesto and cheese near the end of the cooking. DEELISH. I'm sure it will be just as good with tomatoes.

  28. If you're having a party, you can make a variation of this with little plum tomatoes. Sub in feta if you like. Everyone will love you 🙂

  29. Mmm! Looks delicious and easy. Going to give it a try tomorrow night.

  30. I have recently developed an obsession with tomatoes and I have to try this. It just looks so good!!!

  31. Oh my goodness! This is a perfect way to use up some of the tomato harvest.

  32. Trying this tonight …

  33. Oooh, I can't wait to try these while tomatoes are still in season.

    • This is my new favorite side dish! Mine were messy but worth it. Definitely making these at least once a week. 

  34. Yum! What a delicious summer side! I've done tomatoes with cheese and garlic on the grill… but the pesto would really add so much more flavor. We have to try this!

  35. i just recently started liking tomatoes, so i'm not too familiar with cooking them. silly question – what kind of tomatoes did you use?

  36. I've actually made this before! I love all things tomato, pesto, and parm. I also add a splash of balsamic. It makes it all the better! Yum 🙂
