This is inspired by The Neelys’ recipe on Food Network.

6 each tomatoes
2 tablespoons scallions, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh basil leaves, chopped
4 ounces goat cheese
2 ounces neufchatel cheese
1 1/2 cups orzo, cooked
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/8 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/8 cup parmesan cheese, grated
salt and pepper, to taste

1. Preheat the grill to medium heat.

2. Cut the tomatoes and core them, removing all the seeds and juice.

3. In a medium bowl add the onions, basil, goat cheese and neufchatel cheese. Mix and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add cooked orzo and combine. Stuff the tomatoes with the mixture. Top the tomatoes with the Parmesan and Italian bread crumbs. Drizzle olive oil over the tomatoes.

4. Place the tomatoes directly on the grill with the cover closed and cook for 10 minutes. The juices will begin to run. Remove from grill and place on platter.

About Amy

Recently I came to an ugly realization–I am middle aged. I didn’t really think so but then I doubled my age and thought, “Hmmmm…some of people don’t live to that age. I must be middle age.” This epiphany came in the third quarter of my 39th year. So I am surviving middle age…it’s scary.

  1. Forty is the new 30! Age is a state of mind–the numbers don’t really matter. Enjoy each day (and meal)
