Four Cheese Italian Tomatoes
Gluten Free Living – 2019
Oh my. Four Cheese Italian Tomatoes was such a succulent and amazing side dish. The tomatoes are oven roasted with lots of Italian herbs over top. I used fresh oregano, basil and thyme. I drizzled the tomatoes with olive oil and sprinkled with salt and pepper. Finally, I sprinkled four different cheeses over top. The outcome? Magnificent. 🙂
Seriously, these tomatoes were heavenly. I ate two or three servings myself! I used Asiago, Romano, Parmesan and Mozzarella cheeses. It was almost like eating pasta, without the pasta.
I made up two large 18×26″ cookie sheets of these tomatoes. I found myself with quarts and quarts of all kinds of grape and cherry tomatoes in my refrigerator. I came up with this concoction in order to use them all up. I love Roasted Tomatoes anyway, but this version was incredibly mouthwatering.
I served this delicious side with Beef Pineapple Stir Fry to our Friday night care group last month. I wasn’t the only one who went back for seconds and thirds. 🙂 With two huge cookie sheets of roasted tomatoes, I had some leftovers. I had one gal tell me, “Teresa, I will always take your leftovers home!” Glad to oblige. 🙂
I actually warmed some of these up for my lunch the next day and thought they were good that way too. The cheese provided a savory richness to the tomatoes. The seasonings and olive oil just make everything better.
If you have a bumper crop of tomatoes, this should be your go to recipe. If you enjoy tomatoes as a side dish like I do, Four Cheese Italian Tomatoes should be on your menu. These are festive enough to make for company or holiday menus too.
The gluten free recipe will have you rethinking how you serve tomatoes in the future. They’re not just good for salads or tomato sauce. Tomatoes are marvelous as a side dish or Meatless Monday dish, too. ‘nuf said.
