Pesto Baked Tomatoes

More goods that came of our farmers market trip.

These are very simple but full of flavor and a great side, or salad topper.

Pesto Baked Tomatoes 
preheat over to 425F

  • 2 large ripe tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup of pesto (recipe here)
  • 3 tbsp grated Parmesan 
  • 1 large garlic clove- sliced
  • pepper
  • olive oil
Drizzle olive oil over a baking sheet. Cut tomatoes into thick slices and place them in a single layer on the oiled baking sheet. Place some garlic on to each tomato slice then spread some pesto ontop and grind some pepper over top. Top each tomato with some grated parmesan. Place the tomatoes in the oven for 20 min then broil for a 1-2 minutes until slightly browned on top. Let the tomatoes stand for 5 min. I am warning you,  these are a bit messy and don't come off the pan in a perfect shape but they are definitely tasty and worth it.
