  • 4 medium ripe tomatoes (about 2 1/4 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup chopped pitted kalamata olives
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil


  1. Preheat broiler.

  2. Cut tops off tomatoes; discard. Carefully scoop out tomato pulp, leaving shells intact; finely chop pulp. Combine pulp with remaining ingredients. Place tomato shells in an 8-inch square baking dish. Divide pulp mixture evenly among tomato shells. Broil 2 minutes or until tomatoes just begin to blister and topping is browned.
