Stuffed Tomatoes with Rice Recipe
- 4 medium tomatoes
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 3 tablespoons butter, divided
- 1-1/2 cups cooked rice
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

- 3. Stuff into tomato shells; dot with remaining butter. Place in a greased 9-in. square baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until heated through. Yield: 4 servings.
