    1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the cheese, basil, salt and pepper. Mix with a fork until well blended.
    2. Halve each cherry tomato. Using a small spoon, carefully scoop out the pulp to make a hollow, yet sturdy, shell. Drain off any juice that may be in the tomato shells.
    3. Scoop about 1 teaspoon of the cheese mixture and carefully stuff into a tomato shell. Repeat until tomatoes or cheese mixture is used up. Arrange the filled tomatoes on a serving platter.

    Really easy recipe. Can easily be doubled and is great at parties. You can fill the tomatoes with seasoned cream cheese too!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. I thought this was a great recipe! Well worth the time of hollowing out all those cherry tomatoes (I doubled the recipe). I used it for my boyfriend's art opening and people loved them! I did not use any salt and it was a good thing I did. It would have been way too salty otherwise. I also used a combination of feta and crumbled blue cheese for added flavour.  -  29 Sep 2008


    This ROCKS! These disappear so fast! We have a bumper crop of cherry tomatoes this year, so everyone gets to try these!  -  29 Sep 2008
