The stuffed tomatoes, it is a little on the flat past of fashion that we liked all of them more or less when we was in the canteen with rice too cooked !!! Ah that reminds you of the memories… I have therefore desired him to give back the letters of nobility a bit of dignity, by offering my version for myself with only good things in it ! Well I sell a little (oups…de all the heat already had because of my ankles !!!), but nothing beats a good stuffing, well seasoned, and there it would become almost the perfect dish.

In any case I love it stuffed tomatoes (and Gentleman too), so why not take advantage of the beautiful tomatoes of the season to forget the tomato mozza’ (even if it is terribly good and fresh), and their do to make a small turn in the oven ?! It you try this lil dish vintage ?!
