Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

  • Place tomatoes cut-side up on a baking sheet. Top with Parmesan, oregano, salt and pepper. Drizzle with oil. Bake until the tomatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.


Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.

Tasty-ish Love Parmesan cheese....love 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. Pros: Warm filling nutritious Read More

The first time I made this it wasn't so great;there was too much tomato that muddled all of the flavor. However with a few tweaks it turned out to be a great side dish. I added a little mozzarella to go with the parmesan because it melts so much better. I also added garlic for more depth of flavor. The biggest difference was scooping out the insides of the tomato (I used roma tomatoes). Doing this changed the whole dish! You don't need to scrape out everything but getting the main chunk of tomato in there will make such a big difference. With some changes I would recommend this dish to everyone! Read More

Lower heat So the 450 this called for was too hot for my oven I lowered to 425 after checking them and finding them to be almost burning only needed about 10 mins. bake time. Also I would recommend to spray your pan with cooking spray mine stuck like crazy and were very mushy over all they tasted great and my husband would eat them again. Pros: great flavor easy to make Cons: heat too high stuck to pan Read More

Wonderful! Made it with fresh corn on the cob and rolled my corn in the juice instead of using butter! Wish I had some fresh oregano instead of dried. Read More
