What a way to liven up the basic field tomato! These “sandwiches” are filled with a delicious cheese and sun-dried tomato filling and topped with toasted pine nuts.
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Spray a baking sheet with vegetable oil.
2. Slice each tomato into 4 thick slices.
3. Stir the goat cheese, cream cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, basil and half the Parmesan cheese together in a bowl. Place 4 slices of tomato on a baking sheet. Spread the goat cheese mixture evenly over the slices. Top with the remaining slices of tomato. Sprinkle with the pine nuts and the remaining Parmesan.
4. Bake in the center of the oven for 5 minutes or until just warmed through.
