Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Ask a grown-up to turn the oven to 200C/180C fan/ gas 6. Cut the tops off tomatoes (keep tops) and scoop the insides into a sieve set over a bowl.

  • STEP 2

    Cut the mozzarella into chunks and snip or tear up the basil leaves.

  • STEP 3

    Sit the tomatoes in a baking dish. Add a few chunks of mozzarella into each tomato.

  • STEP 4

    Put a few torn basil leaves into each one.

  • STEP 5

    Tear or snip the red pepper into pieces, then add a piece to each tomato. Add more mozzarella, basil and pepper in layers until each tomato is full.

  • STEP 6

    Put a blob of pesto in each tomato, then put the tops back on. Pour over the juices from the tomato insides. Ask a grown-up to put them in the oven for 20 mins.
