Parmesan Stuffed Tomatoes (S)

I’ve been brainstorming new dinner ideas as we try to eat at HOME more.  I’ve already passed along some of my favorites to you, including my Meat Roma and Shepherd’s Pie.  You may want to give them a try if you haven’t already.  One of my favorite new recipes that I tried off the web was from my friend, Gwen at Gwen’s Nest.  I made her Garlic Chicken in the crock-pot and it was delish!!  I love to go through her blog and look for new things try.

I love Italian food and this recipe started culminating in my mind a week ago. I love tomatoes!  They can work in your low carb meals if you don’t overdo it.  I used 6 Roma tomatoes and scooped the sides and insides out of each one after I cut them in half.  You can pat them dry if you want.

ParmesanstuffedtomatoesMy hubby really loved them too.  I hope this gives you a new “S”/low carb side dish to try!  Just don’t eat too many or you will put yourself in a different fuel.


  • 6 Roma Tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 Joseph’s pita, ground (1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasonings
  • salt
  • pepper
  • olive oil

Note:  I’m sure could use 1/2 cup of a ground low carb tortilla or Joseph’s Lavish bread as well.  Pork rinds would be a suggestion if you don’t have a Joseph’s Pita.

  1. This would be such an amazing blessing not just for myself but for my family. I a am 55 year old mother/ grandmother who still has most of my kids home including my Grandbaby. I work full time and watch my grandson full time so his sweet momma can work and go to school. We are going through some financial difficulties right now that probably won’t be getting much better anytime soon. With all this stress and years of not taking care of myself I need to do something so I’m strong enough to stay around and help my family. I am overweight, high blood pressure, poor circulation, and get short of breath with exertion. I would also share this book with my sister in law who is also in need of this life changing book. Thank you for your generosity in giving people an opportunity to improve their lives. Even if I am not chosen I thank you for those whose lives will be touched by yours what a loving thing to do! God bless you!
