Cheesy Tomato & Basil Bake

I've said it before and I'll say it again... I LOVE tomatoes from the oven! This was so good. I could seriously eat these with every meal, all the time!! Tomato lovers... enjoy.

1 lb cherry tomatoes, halved
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1/3 c panko bread crumbs
2 tbsp light melted butter

1/3 c part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tbsp chopped basil

Preheat the broiler. Combine the tomatoes, garlic and olive oil in an 8-inch baking dish. Season with salt and pepper. Broil, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes are softened, about 12 minutes. Sprinkle mozzarella over tomatoes. Then, combine the Panko and the butter, and sprinkle over the tomatoes. Broil until cheese is melted and Panko becomes golden and crispy. Sprinkle the basil over the top. Serve.

Original recipe found here.

We had the tastiest dinner last night along with this bake: Garlic Mushroom Quinoa, Cauliflower Mashed "Potatoes" (SO good!), and some tiny zucchini pizza bites. I don't have a recipe posted for those. I just broil the zucchini slices on each side, add marinara, cheese, and turkey pepperoni... then broil some more!
