Broiled Tomatoes

Tomato sauce does not always agree with me. For some reason spaghetti dishes often make me feel so full I am uncomfortable for a few hours. I had a bunch of tomatoes from my weekly grocery shopping so I thought I would try something different. I do not always have patience when it comes to roasting tomatoes. Roasted tomato recipes I have researched averages about one hour of roasting time at 200 degree heat. I was hungry could not wait for an hour so I decided to broil my tomatoes. Yum! What a great turnout. I will do this more often when I am in a hurry. Enjoy!

2 tomatoes sliced about ½” thick

1 tablespoon Olive Oil

Fresh Parmesan Cheese, grated

Salt / Pepper

Preheat Broiler on low heat. I have an electric stove so I am able to control the broiler heat. For gas stoves, you will have to monitor and watch the tomatoes carefully as gas stoves tend to cook faster.

Slice tomatoes about ½” thick and lay on a cookie sheet or a stone. Lightly salt and pepper the slices. Sprinkle olive oil on tomatoes. Put tomatoes on 2nd rack in the oven so that the broiler can cook the tomatoes. The cooking time should not be more than 10 minutes for gas stoves cooking time may be less.

 Take cooking sheet out and sprinkle grated Parmesan Cheese on each slice of tomato and return back to the broiler. Increase to high heat and leave in oven long enough to have a golden color on the cheese.

 Remove from broiler and top over pasta, burgers or any dish you are preparing.
