We had so many tomatoes from our garden that were ripe at the same time. I found this recipe and gave it a try. It was delicious. I read the comments about adding pepper so I added a few peppers too. It was easy to prepare and really delicious. We did have French bread with it. I think a little pasta on the side would be great with it as well.

We had this last night and it was really yummy, and good way to help use up my tomato glut. I had a red pepper which needed to be used, so slice that up and cooked it with the onions and garlic. Also added some black olives when mixing everything together in the baking dish. Served with 3 diffrerant types of homemade tear and share bread to soak up the juices. Will certainly make this again

This is really, really nice. I add parmesan to the breadcrumbs, and have also added red peppers to the tomatoes, which was tasty. Next time I might put some olives in with it too.
