Parmesan and Pesto Baked Tomatoes

Parmesan Baked tomatoes

These parmesan and pesto baked tomatoes are a perfect way to spice up some leftover tomatoes.  You can use them for a quick sandwich or an easy appetizer to serve guests. The great part is you are not limited to parmesan You can use any cheese,  such as mozzarella, goat cheese, and so on. I also decided to add pesto to a couple of the tomatoes for flavor.
