Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes

Makes: 30 servings
Prep 45 mins
Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes
  • 30  cherry tomatoes (1-inch diameter)
  • 1  cup  firmly packed fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2  cup  firmly packed fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1/4  cup  pine nuts, toasted
  • 1  large clove garlic, quartered
  • 1/8  teaspoon  black pepper
  • 2  tablespoons  olive oil
  • 4  ounces  goat cheese (chevre), crumbled (1 cup)
  •  Fresh basil leaves (optional)

1. Slice off the very top of each tomato. Cut a thin slice off the bottom of each tomato so they stand level. Scoop out tomatoes from the top using a very small, narrow spoon. Turn upside down on paper towels to drain.

2. For pesto, in a blender container or food processor bowl combine 1 cup basil, the parsley, nuts, garlic, and pepper. Cover and blend or process with several on/off turns until a paste forms, stopping machine several times and scraping the sides. With the machine running slowly, gradually add oil and blend or process to the consistency of soft butter. Transfer to a small bowl and stir in the goat cheese.

3. Spoon pesto mixture into a small self-sealing plastic bag. Snip a very small hole in one corner of the bag. Seal bag. Squeeze pesto into the tomato shells. Place filled tomatoes on a serving plate. If desired, garnish with small basil leaves. Makes 30 tomatoes.
