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.

Ingredients

  • 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
