I make this dish often - my family really likes it. Besides being flavorful, the tomatoes make a colorful, zesty addition to any dinner.

"Simple recipe, but it takes a lot longer than 30 minutes at 350 F to cook a stuffed tomato (mine took 50 minutes). I substituted seasoned bread crumbs (didn't have croutons), added ricotta cheese and 8 oz. crab meat with celery, onion and garlic to the mix, and then topped with mex-cheese blend. Sprinkled a little Old Bay seasoning on top of the cheese before baking. Turned out fantastic!"

"We made these with good roma's and everyone loved them, especially mom!

Of course dad had to change things up a bit.
Sprikle inside tomatoes with balsamic vinegar, let soak for 30 mins before stuffing.
Used mozzarella instead of american/cheddar, added garlic and fresh basil, topped with more parm, drizzled with evoo.
didn't worry about foil."
