Directions

  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Slice a thin piece from the rounded bottom of each tomato, so they sit upright.
  3. Slice each tomato in half horizontally. Arrange the tomato halves, cut side up on a shallow roasting pan or rimmed baking sheet lined with foil.
  4. Drizzle with the oil, then sprinkle on the salt and pepper.
  5. Scatter the garlic over the tomatoes.
  6. Roast until they're softened and warmed through, approx 15 minutes.
  7. Mine took longer -- approx 25 minutes. Mean while, cut the mozzarella into 6- 1/2 inch rounds.
  8. Using a spatula, sandwich each cheese slice between 2 hot tomato halves.
  9. The heat of tomatoes will melt the cheese slightly.
  10. Drizzle with the juices collected in the roasting pan and garnish with basil.
