Spinach Risotto Stuffed Tomatoes

Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    Red Ripe Tomatoes, 8 medium whole (2-3/5" dia)
    Arborio Rice 1/2 cup Risotto rice, 2 serving
    College Inn Grarden Vegetable Broth (can- 2 servings), 2 cup
    Spinach, frozen, 1 cup
    Butter, unsalted, 4 tbsp
    Cheddar Cheese, .5 cup, shredded
    Parsley, dried, 1 tbsp
    Garlic powder, 1 tbsp
    Salt, 1 dash
    Pepper, black, 1 dash

Directions

1. Add 2 Tbsp. of Butter to Saucepan and melt. Add spinach and rice. Cook 2 minutes stirring continuously.

2. Add vegetable broth 1/4 cup at a time. After each 1/4 cup interval simmer on medium until broth has completely absorbed before adding next 1/4 cup of broth. This process should take 18-20 minutes.

3. Stir in herbs and cheddar cheese.

4. Cup 1/2" top off of tomatoes and remove insides (seeds and veins) to form hollow "bowls". Reserve tops.

5. Dip Tomato bowl into whisked egg and then coat outside in breadcrumbs. Fill to top with Risotto mixture. Dip tomato top in egg and cover in breadcrumbs and then place top ontop of rice stuffed tomato bowls like little hats. Repeat this process for all tomatoes.

6. Place tomatoes in greased cooking pan so they fit snug. I used a bowl in the center of my pan to securly fit tomatoes so they can't fall over as they cook.

7. Top each w/ 1/4 Tbsp. of butter.

8. Cook for 30 minutes at 400*.

9. Serves 4 (2 stuffed tomatoes per serving) ENJOY!
