Simple, fresh ingredients that are amazing together. Roast tomatoes in the oven or on your grill; you want them cooked but still firm, definitely not mushy.

  • Mix together the tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, parsley, basil, oregano, and salt and pepper in a bowl, working the seasonings into the cavities of the tomatoes. Place the tomatoes, cut sides up, on a baking sheet, and sprinkle each tomato with about 1 tablespoon of feta cheese.

  • Bake the tomatoes in the preheated oven until cooked but still firm, about 15 minutes.

Note

Instead of using feta, substitute smoked gouda cheese.

It's not often I'm this impressed with a recipe, especially one I had only average expectations for. This proves not to underestimate the potential of simple and humble dishes. In this case, since hubs detests feta, I took the submitter's suggestion to use smoked gouda and I'm telling you, these little tomato gems were outstandingly delicious. I mixed these together exactly as directed, using fresh tomatoes and herbs from my garden (that could be part of the reason these were so good) and let them set a bit before roasting while I prepared the rest of dinner. Everything was perfect, from the amounts of ingredients to the cooking time. These were a bigger hit than the main course! With more tomatoes on the vine, and gouda in the fridge these will be making an encore appearance real soon! Read More

These were very good. Next time I will slice them rather than halving them though it made them very difficult to eat. Read More

Loved these. I used campari tomatoes as that's what I had on hand. Also used smoked gouda cheese instead of the feta. Next time I will cut back a little bit on the garlic (at hubby's suggestion). The kids even liked them. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I halved the recipe but pretty much made it as written otherwise. Delicious! I'll definitely make these again. Read More

So good! I used smoked gouda and dried spices instead of fresh since it's what I had on hand. For 4 romas I just put a light sprinkling of everything called for including garlic powder instead of chopped garlic. All just small tweaks and I cooked the tomatoes for about 11 mins instead of 15 since my oven runs a little hot. Very yummy recipe I highly recommend it! Update: I've made this with other non-roma tomatoes (cut into smaller than half slices) and any smokey cheese and it's still wonderful. This is a great recipe. Read More
