Very easy and fast recipe for a great side dish to any meal. It was a little runny, so I would go easy on the extracted liquid next time, but otherwise good.

This Recipe was delicious! I made a few changes based on the ingrediants I had on hand and used blue cheese instead of Feta and a mix of green olives and capers in place of the kalamatas. It was a great way to use up fresh from the garden tomatoes. It was a quick and easy side dish and really dressed up my boring chicken.

Very good and healthy side dish for a meal. I would recommend draining the tomato pulp in a colander for a few minutes after chopping as the finished product is very, very runny without doing that. Salt and pepper to taste would be a good addition to the recipe.

Much tastier than I thought - the filling was delicious. Definitely include the suggested herbs. I took out most of the seeds and mushier parts of the tomato pulp as they would have made the filling runny. I'd suggest adding a little salt to the inside of the tomato shell before filling it as it is otherwise unseasoned. Went well with salmon and couscous.
