Baked Parmesan Tomatoes

Baked Parm tomatoes

In my search for low-carb side dishes, I came across this awesome recipe for these Baked Parmesan Tomatoes.  They are great to pair with a delicious steak or chicken meal.  I’ve even made them for lunch as the main dish.  They are quick to make and have a ton of flavor.

Our local farmer’s market has some really good tomato choices, I often get a few large beef steak tomato when I’m going to use them as a main dish, or if I’m using them as a side, I will use tomatoes on the vine. The fresher the tomato, the more delicious these will be.

I hope you make them tonight and get to enjoy them as much as we do!!
