This recipe was inspired by my good pal Ina Garten. I really do love her, despite my recent post! I just think she'd be a lot cooler and less stiff if she did one too many shots of tequila, danced naked on a table and threw up all over herself. That woman needs to let loose for once in her life! :-)
Here's What You Need:
1 juicy, ripe tomato sliced into 1/2 inch thick pieces, don't even attempt to use an unripe tomato here.
1/2 cup of kale pesto, it might be time for an intervention with this stuff...I'm totally addicted to it.
1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese
Salt & Pepper
Here's What You Do:
Preheat oven to 400. Arrange your tomato slices on a baking sheet. Drizzle them with olive oil and salt and pepper them. Bake for about 10 minutes. Take them out of the oven and top each tomato with a generous helping of pesto (I assume you can use whatever kind of pesto you like, basil, arugula, etc.) Sprinkle each tomato with Parmesan cheese. Put the tomatoes back in the oven until the cheese gets melty and brown and bubbly.
Once that happens, take them out of the oven, and lightly salt again. Enjoy! And look, if you're underage and reading my blog, I do not condone underage drinking. Nor do I condone doing one too many shots of tequila, no matter what your age. Trust me. You'd be better off playing in traffic, getting hit by a semi and being in a coma for a week than to have to deal with a tequila hangover. So, I'd advise you to stay off the tequila and overdose on these tomatoes instead.
