Parmesan & Mozzarella Baked Tomatoes

We love tomatoes and use them in meals one way or another almost every day. Unfortunately, our tomato plants didn’t produce enough this year to make my slow cooker freezer spaghetti sauce, I had to resort to buying a couple of cases from the local Amish store. After the sauce making, I still had over a half case left, so I was racking my brain to come up with creative ways to serve tomatoes.

This recipe was a winner! The cheese topped and seasoned tomatoes taste wonderful! They take only a few minutes to make, but add a bright and flavorful touch to any meal. This is also a wonderful transition from summer fresh tomatoes to a heartier fall tomato dish.
