Instead of tossing tomatoes with the salad, broil them with a cheesy topping for a side you'll want to double for the rest of the week.

Serves 2 (serving size: 3 tomato halves)

3 vine-ripened tomatoes, halved horizontally
Cooking spray
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon minced fresh oregano


1. Preheat broiler to high.

2. Place oven rack in middle of oven. Arrange tomato halves, cut sides up, on a foil-lined jelly-roll pan. Coat cut sides of tomatoes with cooking spray; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Broil 8 minutes. Combine cheese, garlic, and oregano in a bowl; sprinkle over tomatoes. Broil 3 minutes or until cheese melts and is golden.
