    Used different ingredients. Absolutely delicious! Once the tomato was stuffed, I topped with some breadcrumbs, parm cheese and a little olive oil. Thanks Anita!  -  29 Sep 2008

    Altered ingredient amounts. One of the most succesful recipes I have tried from allrecipes; my stocker and I really enjoyed this. After reading the comments from a few reviewers, I upped the ingredients to avoid running out of stuffing, of course I ended up with too much, but the mixture is so flavourful that it can be combined with lettuce for a great salad or mixed in with other vegetables.  -  29 Sep 2008
