This quick and easy recipe for Cheesy Baked Tomatoes is low carb friendly... and totally delicious. I made it as a side for supper.
Tastes like a garlic bread.. without the bread... and the tomatoes are wonderful this time of year... deep red ripened tomatoes with that wonderful flavor.. just YUMMMM!
If you want to lower the fat... you can use a fat free Italian dressing.... but really there is very little used.. so it shouldn't be an issue.
If you don't have Italian dressing.. you can just brush some olive oil on them... they just won't have as strong "Italian" flavor.
I used a finely shredded Italian cheese mix.. but you can use just mozzarella if that's all you have... sprinkle a little Parmesan cheese too...
Cut your tomato slices thick...
You can also just cut the tomatoes in half.
I hope you like this quick and easy recipe!
