Large, vine-ripe tomatoes are stuffed with a filling of Sargento® Mozzarella or Mild Cheddar, chopped zucchini, the tomato pulp and croutons for a delicious meatless meal.

  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil or 1/2 tsp. dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
Directions

  2. Stir cheese, zucchini, croutons, basil and pepper into tomato pulp; mix well. Divide mixture among tomato shells. Arrange in shallow baking dish.
  3. Bake in preheated 350°F oven 20 minutes or until tomatoes are hot and cheese is melted.
