    1. Wash and cut the tomatoes in half horizontally. Remove the pulp and the seeds from the tomatoes. Use a sieve to separate the juice from the seeds and set the juice aside for later. Let the tomatoes drain upside down on a plate.
    2. Finely chop the herbs using either a mixer or mortar and pestle. Add the breadcrumbs, chopped herbs, cheese, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, salt and pepper to the tomato juice. Mix everything well.
    3. Stuff the tomatoes with the mixture and bake in the oven at 180 C / Gas 4 for about 20 minutes. Serve the tomatoes lukewarm or cold.

    Pepato cheese

    This is an Italian ewe's milk cheese with peppercorns added. If you can't find it, use Pecorino instead.
