Ingredients:  
6 medium tomatoes
breadcrumbs
oregano
parsley
basil
garlic salt
parmesan cheese
olive oil

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350F.
9x13 inch baking dish or can use a smaller dish depending on size of tomatoes.
Slice top and bottom of tomato so it will stand up in baking dish.
Scoop out pulp with a spoon, just enough to fill with the breadcrumbs.
Keep the pulp and you can use in the baking dish as a sauce.
Mix together the breadcrumbs, spices, cheese and olive oil in bowl. There should be just enough olive oil to bind it together. (You will add more oil later).
Fill each tomato to the top, not overflowing, and pack gently (not too tight).
Add more parmesan cheese.
Drizzle a good amount of olive oil over each tomato to saturate the bread crumbs.
Cover with foil and bake for half an hour, basting with the juices from the baking dish.
Uncover and let cook for 10-15 min longer.

I didn't include amounts as you can spice it up as much as you want and also the more oil you add, the more moist it will be. If you don't put enough oil, they can be dry. You can eat them on their own, but we put it on top of pasta, mostly linguini.

Personal Notes:
My Husband Victor, being Italian, had this growing up all his life, so he was the one who always made it. It's a family favorite until one Sunday when I decided to make it and the kids thought it was the best. He didn't say anything at first and then confessed it my 'Polish' touch that made it taste even better! Now the kids ask 'me' to make it for them for special dinners!!
