Goat Cheese-Topped Tomatoes

Serves 4
Time 45 min
A wonderful first course since creamy goat cheese combines nicely with the tartness of tomatoes. If your tomatoes are very ripe, they may take less time to cook, so check them often.

Method

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Combine cheese and pesto in a small bowl; set aside.

Cut across the top of each tomato to remove the stem end; discard the "cap."

Drizzle tomato with oil and season with salt and pepper.

Bake tomatoes on a baking sheet until slightly tender, about 30 minutes. (They should hold their shape and still feel plump, with some give when pressed with your finger.)

Remove from the oven and top with goat cheese mixture.

Set the oven to broil.

Broil tomatoes until cheese begins to turn golden and bubble, about 4 minutes.

Sprinkle with basil before serving.
