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!!!
