    8                    ripe -- round tomatoes,
                         cored and halved
                         salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
    8                    garlic cloves -- pressed
      3/4  C.            freshly ground bread crumbs
                         a handful fresh -- flat leaf
                         parsley -- finely minced
    3      Tbsp.         extra virgin olive oil
 
 Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Arrange tomatoes cut side up in a
 large baking dish. (Unless the tomatoes are exceptionally
 watery, do not seed or drain them; they will better hold their
 shape.) Season generously with salt and pepper. Slice the
 garlic into thin chips and sprinkle over tomatoes. Combine
 bread crumbs and parsley and scatter over tomatoes. Drizzle
 with oil. Bake, uncovered, for 1 hour or until tomatoes are
 soft, browned and sizzling. Serve immediately.
