Cheesy Tomatoes


I'm having serious deja vu with this post, but I've searched and searched the archives and I can't seem to find it's twin.  So, here is a hopefully new post for you to enjoy :)  Again, this is a super simple recipe.  For two servings, you will need:

  • 4-6 ounces pasta (we used angel hair, so a little more is nice)
  • 6 tomato slices
  • 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Olive oil
  • Dried Italian seasonings
  • Salt and pepper
Heat your oven to 500 degrees on the broiler setting and start a pot of water on the stove.  While you are waiting for the water to boil, arrange the tomato slices on a foil lined baking sheet.  Top with mozzarella and salt and pepper to taste. 

While the pasta is cooking, broil the tomatoes until they are golden brown and bubbly, about 5 minutes.

Drain the pasta, drizzle with olive oil, and toss with Italian seasoning to taste. 

Top the pasta with the tomatoes, and you're done! 

Delicious, simple, and perfect for all the great tomatoes out during the summer.  This would be great with some fresh basil or rosemary, too!  Enjoy! (ps, I'm off to Missouri with my family for the first of my back to back Missouri weekends. Pictures to come!)

  1. I don't like tomatoes but these look so good with the cheese on top...i'm a huge cheese lover. oh by the way the "alternative" ice cream sandwiches were a huge hit with everyone here. We've made them 3 times since.

    1. Oh, I'm so glad that you liked them! I am almost afraid to make more for fear of eating them all in one sitting :)

      I bet you could substitute a vegetable you do like for the tomatoes- maybe eggplant or zucchini? ... I'll have to try it out! :)
