A sprinkle of Parmesan and a drizzle of olive oil transform tomatoes into the perfect side dish. Or try sandwiching them between slices of your favorite whole-wheat country bread.

Soggy and sad

I made four large slices each out of my tomatoes (like photo accompanying the article), followed the recipe, and was very disappointed. They came out very soggy, and the cheese never melted or browned. Unsurprising, really, as parmesan doesn't melt well!

Maybe this would work better with a different cheese, but I'm not going to bother trying it again to find out.

I'm not a tomato lover ...still not.

I have never been a huge tomato fan, but I have been wanting to try something new. I decided with the cheese, and oregano it might be a lot better. It definitely didn't do the trick for me. Im sure if you are a die hard tomato fan you will be impressed with this dish, but I wasn't.

Quick, simple

Love Parmesan tomatoes....but was disappointed by the combo of flavours. Especially after all the reviews that raved about these. They're a good snack...but definitely not amazing.

Warm, filling, nutritious
Wet but squashed the pizza craving

So I made these today, and they really did alleviate the pizza craving. I didn't think they would, but instead of ordering a whole pizza (for myself, since Hubby wouldn't have any) I had one tomato, sliced out, oil spritzed, basil dashed, topped with FF cheddar shreds and a sprinkle of FF grated Parmesan. I'll reduce the time to 10 or even 5 mins though. 15 didn't stop them from being really wet, and it doesn't take that long to melt cheese.

Easy and low calorie.

Try salting the tomatoes a

Try salting the tomatoes a bit and setting them on paper towels to drain extra liquid then top and bake! :)

So good!

So easy, so good and will accompany just about anything. I used roma tomatoes that I had on hand and sliced them lengthwise.

Quick and easy
