Herb Baked Tomatoes Recipe

This is a wonderful baked tomatoes recipe.

It is studded with bits of garlic and savory with chopped fresh herbs.

See the variation below if you want to substitute dried herbs for the fresh.

You can certainly use butter in this recipe for baked tomatoes as it states right in the recipe, but I personally love making it with olive oil. The tastes blend perfectly together and the olive oil is so healthy for us.

You can top the tomatoes with a sprinkling of freshly grated Parmesan cheese for a wonderful savory flavor.

This is one of those vegetable side dish recipes that goes with so much. Pair it with any plainer meat, like these baked chicken breasts.
