Mock Roasted Tomatoes

Created on 09/25/11

 

 2 tomatoes sliced about ½” thick

1 tablespoon Olive Oil

Fresh Parmesan Cheese, grated

Salt / Pepper

 

Preheat broiler on low heat. I have an electric stove so I am able to control the  heat. For gas stoves, you will have to monitor and watch the tomatoes carefully as gas stoves tend to cook faster.

 

Slice tomatoes about ½” thick and lay on a cookie sheet or a stone. Lightly salt and pepper the slices. Sprinkle olive oil on tomatoes. Put tomatoes on 2nd rack in the oven so that the broiler can cook the tomatoes. The cooking time should not be more than 10 minutes for gas stoves cooking time may be less.

 

Take cooking sheet out and sprinkle grated Parmesan Cheese on each slice of tomato and return back to the broiler. Increase to high heat and leave in oven long enough to have a golden color on the cheese.

 

Remove from broiler and top over pasta, burgers or any dish you are preparing.
