Reviews for Spinach-Topped Tomatoes
Sort By :
"I make these quite often, and they are great. Most of the time though, after placing the tomatoes on the paper towel to dry out, I remove the insides and add them to the cheese/spinach mix. I just find it makes it a little easier to fill the tomatoes, rather than try to place the ingredients on top. Great either way though."
"I have made this recipe countless times- I am addicted to it. I agree that bake time is more like 45-60 minutes. And, IF there are any left over, they are even better the next day"
"Great flavor and color. This is perfect for a light but warm meal."
"I made this this past summer and it wasoutstanding. I don't know how anyone could think otherwise. I'm going to try it roma tomatoes next time (this week)!"
"This was absolutely the easiest dish I have made for a crown. I used Roma tomatoes so that they were smaller and the recipe would go around better. It had a great, rich flavor that was only pennies per serving. And I had some of the spinach mixture left. (About enough for 3 more tomatoes) Also, something I did to make the tomatoes stand a little better was to slice a small portion off of the bottom/rounded portion of the tomato so that it had a flat base and were sturdier. Excellent."
