Italian Stuffed Tomatoes are the stuff that cooks' dreams are made of! You'll be the top tomato in your house when you serve this hearty yet healthy baked stuffed tomato side dish that tastes downright terrific!

What You'll Need

  • 4 large ripe tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 (19-ounce) can white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 4 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 tablespoons Italian-flavored bread crumbs

What to Do

  1. Cut the top off each tomato; with a spoon, scoop out and discard most of the pulp and seeds. Brush outsides of tomato shells with 1 tablespoon oil; place tomatoes in a microwave-safe dish.
  2. In a medium skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add onion, and cook for about 4 minutes, until it starts to brown, stirring constantly. Stir in garlic and red pepper, and cook 30 seconds.
  3. Stir in beans and bring to a boil; stir in 3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese. Fill each tomato shell with bean mixture, dividing evenly.
  4. In a cup, combine bread crumbs and remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Sprinkle over tomatoes. Lightly cover and microwave on high power until tomatoes are tender but still retain their shape, about 4 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese, and serve.

Serving Suggestions

These stuffed tomatoes make great appetizers or go-alongs for grilled steak, chicken, or fish.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Sounds good. Seems to me, taking out the pulp and seeds, you only have a tomato shell. Anyone know all nutrients are in the semi-green gooey stuff. I would never discard that, I would eat it.

This sounds great, but I would add Italian seasoning.
