This is my guest post for Olga, who is currently on vacation. It's very simple, yet satisfying recipe. Good for summer as tomatoes are at the best flavor. I used tomatoes from a farm only a block away from my house. Serve this tomatoes with any of your grilling dish. It is Superb!
5 ripe, but not soft tomatoes, cut crosswise
2 handful flat leaf parsley
5 cloves or more garlic
salt and pepper, to taste
¼ cup breadcrumb, optional (I didn't use any)
- Preheat oven to 400⁰F. Arrange the tomatoes on a gratin dish, set aside.
- Chopped finely all together the parsley and the garlic with mezzaluna (if you have one, otherwise use your regular knife). Transfer to a bowl, mix with breadcrumb if using. Spoon this mixture evenly among the tomatoes, sprinkle with salt and pepper, then drizzle with enough olive oil. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes. Serve at once.
