Dear Tomatoes and Tomato growers,
I love you.
This is a recipe I have made before and it is Ina Garten's from Barefoot Contessa. I believe they are called Scalloped Tomatoes.
It is so awesome. I serve it on top of chicken but you could eat this all by itself believe me.
So you need 2 1/2 lbs. of plum tomatoes to start.
Then you need 1 1/2 C of crunchy french bread cut into little cubes. Toast them up on the stove in some olive oil.
Chop up the tomatoes and mix them in a bowl with 2T sugar and some salt and pepper.
Add them to the french bread croutons (Med/High heat).
Cook that up for about 5 min. Take off the heat and add about 1 C slivered fresh basil. (It may only call for 1/2 C, I can't remember...but more can't hurt!)
Pour into a casserole dish and top with fresh grated Parmesan (or whatever you have).
Bake it at 350 for 25-30 min or until the tomatoes are bubbly.
Then eat it up before you have to share it with everyone!
