Scalloped Tomatoes

Barefoot Blogger, Josie of Pink Parsley Catering

has chosen Scalloped Tomatoes

You wouldn't think something with so few ingredients would have so much flavor!
Great as a summer side dish although I would enjoy it as an entree.

Scalloped Tomatoes
2009, Ina Garten, Show: Barefoot Contessa Episode: Farm Stand Food


  • Good olive oil
  • 2 cups (1/2-inch diced) bread from a French boule, crusts removed
  • 16 plum tomatoes, cut 1/2-inch dice (about 2 1/2 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (3 cloves)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup julienned basil leaves, lightly packed
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a large (12 inch) saute pan over medium heat. Add the bread cubes and stir to coat with the oil. Cook over medium to medium-high heat for 5 minutes, stirring often, until the cubes are evenly browned.

Meanwhile, combine the tomatoes, garlic, sugar, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. When the bread cubes are done, add the tomato mixture and continue to cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes. Off the heat, stir in the basil.

Pour the tomato mixture into a shallow (6 to 8 cup) baking dish. Sprinkle evenly with the Parmesan cheese and drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes until the top is browned and the tomatoes are bubbly. Serve hot or warm.

Tomatoes are one of my favourite things and your recipe sounds like a delicious way to showcase some of the beautiful fresh ones we are getting at the moment!

This is very similar to a dish my mother made called stewed tomatoes. It was even more simple, but delicious. It makes my mouth water to see your photos of this dish and read the ingredients. Our taste sense has a strong memory.
I believe I will need to try this dish with your recipe very soon, thank you
