Pesto Parmesan Baked Tomatoes are delicious roasted tomatoes topped with pesto and shredded parmesan cheese. So easy to make, only 3 ingredients!
There are so many things I love about summer and summer tomatoes are high on that list. For this recipe, the sweeter the tomatoes the better. I usually make my own pesto, but I had a jar of Delallo pesto that I didn't want to waste and it was perfect.
How to make baked tomatoes
Lightly peasy, just sliced the tomatoes, topped with a little pesto and shredded parmesan cheese and baked in the oven. This would also be delicious with Asiago or mozzarella. Serve them as a side of grilled chicken or fish, or even a simple pasta with garlic and oil.
Sometimes I cut the tomatoes into four thick slices instead, which is perfect on crusty bread. Remember to use more pesto and cheese so calories change. You can also do something similar with chicken, tomatoes, pesto and cheese called Chicken Pesto Bake, as well!
