ad-libbed stuffed tomato

I recently bought a beefsteak tomato at Trader Joe’s because they didn’t have cherry tomatoes in stock (so sad!).

I ad-libbed a baked stuffed tomato with the ingredients in my fridge.

  • One large tomato
  • Two scoops of ricotta
  • Two basil leaves, chopped
  • A small slice of jalapeno, chopped finely
  • A dash of oregano
  • A small spoonful of tomato paste
  • A dash of herb feta
  • A slice of baguette, cut or ripped into small crumbs
  • A dash of salt and pepper
  • A sprinkling of mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 400. Cut top off tomato and hollow out. Combine all ingredients (except mozzarella) in a small bowl; mix well; and scoop into tomato. Sprinkle mozzarella on top. Bake on a cookie sheet for 18ish minutes.
