I made this exact recipe (picture was almost identical as well) from a Benson and Hedges cookbook published in the early 1980's. Our sons and company loved it. I still make it after almost 40 years. Another variation is to use Swiss cheese.

Very yummy and great way to use tomatoes and green peppers out of the garden. It's way better with "real" tomatoes.
