Thank you for a delicious and versatile recipe. I did make some changes to suit our tastes. I used 1 cup of regular long grain rice. I sauteed it in 3 tbsps butter until lightly toasted and then added 2 cups water. Brought that to a boil; reduced heat; covered and let simmer for 15 mins until water was absorbed. I then added salt to taste and 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley. While the rice was simmering, I browned the meat. I halved the recipe because I was only feeding 2. I used 1/2 lb Johnsonville Sweet Italian Sausage. Browned that and then added 1/2 of a chopped onion with 1 teaspoon of minced garlic. Finished cooking the meat with the veges and then added the chopped tomato pulp and some salt to taste. Scraped all the bits off the bottom of the pan and gave it a taste. I added a tbsp of chopped fresh basil and I omitted the tomato sauce. It was juicy enough for me with the tomato pulp and everything tasted so fresh and yummy. I added 2 cups rice and stirred it all together and then filled the tomatoes. I only used 4 tomatoes. Cooked for 20 mins and then topped each tomato with a slice of asiago cheese. Melted the cheese and served with the rest of the rice. It was absolutely delicious. I ate one and my husband ate 3!! and he finished off the leftover filling!! Definitely a keeper. I will make this whenever I can find good tomatoes on sale. Thanks so much!

this was super easy! being from Wisconsin i added shredded cheddar to the rice mixture and some chopped green peppers and celery. i also cheated and use bottled spaghetti sauce instead of plain old tomato sauce. added more cheese to the tops 5 minutes before taking out from oven!

Great Recipe! I did a couple things different...I used leftover shredded beef from a pot roast with onions. (it had the garlic flavor in the roast.) I did not use the tomato sauce...just used the homegrown tomato juices and meats from the center of the tomato and followed the directions from there. I had cooked rice already so I mixed the shredded beef, tomato and juices together and any other ingredients and put right into the tomato. Cooked as directed and it came out perfect. I will be making this again. Thanks for the recipe!

This is a great recipe. The only thing I did different is add cheese to it since I love cheese on everything. Very tasty and easy to make.

I made this recipe...strained tomatoes and used only a little pulp and 1 can tomato juice...cut sides of tomatoes on 4 sides to open more to fit more filling. Used shredded mozzarella cheese and sprinkled adagio cheese on top. Did not use tomato tops...I used jasmine rice to mix with filling instead of instant.
