Roma Tomato Parmesan


Ripe Roma Tomatoes

Parmesan Cheese


Your favorite Fresh or Dried Herb (Oregano, Basil, Dill, Or Coriander, etc.)

Margarine or Butter

Select firm red, ripe Roma Tomatoes. Cut in half lengthwise and place on a baking pan out sides up. Drizzle squeeze margarine or a “small” pat of butter on each half. Sprinkle lightly with salt. Sprinkle finely chopped fresh herbs or dried on each half. Then, simply sprinkle a generous amount of Parmesan Cheese on the prepared tomatoes.

Place underneath a pre-heated broiler for 3 to 4 minutes and remove when the Parmesan Cheese has melted. Also, this recipe idea will work in the microwave on med-hi for l to 2 minutes (watch closely or tomatoes will over cook). Serve as either an appetizer or as a tasty side garnish on a main plate entrée: Very delicious and a nice touch.


Roma Tomatoes

Favored in Italy, Romas are available all year round from Florida, California or Mexico. Superb sliced thin for hoagies or as salad wedge tomato. Always excellent in flavor when ripe. Also superb for Salsas and Sauces.
