Crouton Tomato Casserole

This old-fashioned side uses lots of delicious tomatoes and seasonings that give it an Italian twist. Every time I serve it, someone asks for the recipe. —Norma Nelson, Punta Gorda, Florida

    I made this for side dish. It was tasty and a different way for me to have tomatoes. I will certainly make this again. I did not change a thing.

    Perfectly practical way to use up the extra Romas I had on hand. Next time, I'll sprinkle the basil and thyme directly on the food, then drizzle the salted-butter over that, to lessen herb clumping. The Parmesan cheese topping made my whole house smell great!
