Usually when you think of good vegetables to stuff, you might think of peppers, eggplant, or squash. This recipe is a bit outside the box to help us cope with the bounty of 'maters (aka tomatoes) this time of year. It's really quite simple. Cut off the top 1/2 inch of each mater and scoop out the flesh. Stuff in your favorite filling and boom! You have impressed guests and made a fun meal.
The filling here has just a few ingredients: beans, artichoke hearts (from a can), a little onion and fresh pesto. The idea of pesto goes way beyond basil, pine nuts and gobs of oil. In fact, all you need is a bunch of fresh herbs and some kind of nut to make something packed with flavor.
