 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3      med           firm tomatoes, cored, halved crosswise
      1/4  c             purchased pesto sauce
    6                    very thin onion slices
      1/2  c             Monterey jack cheese -- shredded
      1/3  c             smoked almonds -- chopped
    2      tbsp          snipped parsley
 
 Using a spoon, hollow out the top 1/4-inch of tomato halves.  Top each
 tomato half with 2 teaspoons of pesto sauce and an onion slice.  Arrange
 tomatoes in 2 foil pie pans.
 
 In a grill with a cover, arrange medium=hot coals around the edge of the
 grill.  Test for medium heat in the center of the grill.  Place the foil
 pans containing the tomatoes in the center of the grill rack, but not
 over the coals.  Cover and grill for 8-10 minutes or till tomatoes are
 heated through.
 
 In a small mixing bowl stir together the cheese, almonds, and snipped
 parsley.  Sprinkle mixture over the tomatoes.  Cover and grill about 5
 minutes more or till cheese melts.  Season to taste with salt and
 pepper, if desired.

 NOTES : To test for medium-hot coals, hold the palm of your hand a few
 inches from the center of the grill.  If you can hold your hand there 3
 seconds, the grill is medium-hot.
