About this recipe: An impressive summertime dinner party starter. Use very ripe tomatoes, good quality olive oil and Parmesan for best flavour.
To easily scoop out the frozen ice cream, dip your spoon in hot water before scooping.
Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
The recipe is great. However, I suspect that oil is two tablespoons, not two cups. I tried using two tablespoons and it was oily enough. Try and go for Garrigues or Siurana oil from Spain. - 06 Jun 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Made per recipe directions -- blender worked splendidly for mixing. Used heirlooms this time, which are currently in season here, but have used beefsteak with equally satisfying results. So-o-o delicious. MOST excellent to serve as an impressive first course for a summer dinner party. - 18 Jul 2012 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
