    Parmesan tomatoes are a wonderful, carb free side dish that can easily accompany many meals. Ready in under 15 minutes, with less than 5 minutes being hands-on.

    It was one of those recipes that just magically came together one night using miscellaneous odds and ends from fridge. Isn’t it a wonder how some of the best recipes are happy accidents?

    I needed a quick side dish for Lemon Grilled Chicken and wanted a way to use my last 2 heirloom tomatoes that wasn’t another salad. The last nub of Parmesan cheese gave me the answer and in 15 minutes, we had these delicious baked tomatoes.

    Almost like stewed tomatoes, but baked for just long enough that they are hot the whole way through, but still keep their texture and juices.

    Parmesan cheese and seasonings complement flavors instead of taking over the whole show. I like using a blend of tomato colors so it looks pretty, but you can use any tomato you’d like including plain, old beef steak. I do recommend that they not be too ripe, as they will just start to disintegrate.

    In addition to these Italian inspired ingredients, you can also add these variations on your baked tomatoes:

    • Italian seasoned bread crumbs
    • Toasted Pine Nuts
    • Fresh Basil
    • Fresh Oregano
    • Panko Bread Crumbs
