 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4                    Tomatoes -- large
    2                    Bread slices -- whole wheat
    8                    Anchovies
      1/2   t            Oil from anchovies
      1/3   c            Parmesan cheese -- reserve 2
    1       d            Pepper
 
    Preheat oven to 375F. Choose large, attractive tomatoes. Scoop out
   tomato centres carefully, leaving bottoms intact. Set aside inside of
   tomatoes. Toast bread and cut into 1/2 cubes. Pour oil from anchovies
   on bread cubes. Mash anchovies or mince into fine pieces. Mix
   anchovies, bread cubes and inside of tomatoes. Add parmesan cheese to
   mixture (this will prevent it from getting too wet inside tomatoes).
   Spoon mixture into hollowed out tomatoes. Sprinkle 2 tbsp of reserved
   parmesan on top of tomatoes. Put in 8 square cake pan. Carefully pour
   in 1/2 inch water around tomatoes. Bake 30 minutes in a preheated 375F
   oven.

   served this to my future husband when we were both living in a
   o-op apt downtown. Another neighbour had been bringing him brownies,
   gave him my stuffed tomatoes. Fortunately, my husband wasn't (and)
   sn't a dessert lover, he preferred my tomatoes!
   e flavour of anchovies is not evident in this recipe and
   ven 'anchovy haters' will enjoy it. Source: Mom
