6 roma tomatoes sliced in half with seeds removed
salt and pepper to taste
olive oil to drizzle
1 round of brie cheese sliced
fresh flat leaf parsley
pre heat oven to 350. Slice tomatoes in half and remove seeds with a mellonballer. Just remove the seed and make sure to leave the pulp in place.
Spray a jelly roll pan with fat free non stick spray. Arrange tomatoes on pan, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Drizzle olive oil and roast in the oven for 30-45 minuets. They should look like this when you take them out.
Turn off oven. Dab approximately 1/2 tsp of pesto on each tomato half, add a slice of brie to each.
Place back in oven and let the radiant heat melt the cheese for 5 minutes. Remove and place one leaf of parsley on each tomato half. Serve and enjoy the compliments!
I had a great fresh French Baguette that I served with olive oil and cracked pepper on the side also.
