This summer the tomatoes are plentiful and tasty. I haven’t been disappointed with any that I have purchased at the Farmers Market or given to me by friends. I do know we can run out of ideas of how to prepare tomatoes when we have them in abundance. This is a recipe that I started making a few years ago and my husband and I call it Pizza tomatoes because of the italian flavor when using basil as the herb for seasoning. They are prepared on the grill and are easy to make.
4 plum or small vine-ripe tomatoes, cut lengthwise in half
1/4 cup italian salad dressing
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 Tbsp. grated parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp chopped herbs (basil, chives and/or parsley) We usually use just the basil.
Heat grill to medium-high heat. Place tomatoes, cut-sides up, in greased 8 inch square foil pan. Top with dressing and cheese. Place pan on grate or grill; close lid.
GRILL 10 to 12 minuites or until cheeses are melted and bottoms of tomatoes are browned.
Sprinkle with herbs.
At one time, I subscribed to Kraft Foods magazine and I would receive a great quarterly magazine featuring their products and I think I copied this recipe from one of those magazines. Kraft has a Tuscan Italian Dressing and that is the one I use with this recipe because it is a mild italian dressing.
