- 6 ripe beefsteak tomatoes
- 1 – 2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
- 1 tsp. fresh minced garlic

- 3 cups French or sourdough breadcrumbs, fresh, coarsely chopped
- 1 cup shredded part skim mozzarella cheese
- 1 – 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- Preheat oven to 450°F.
- Halve each tomato; use a fork to break up the cut surface of each half, pressing down to make a shallow well. Arrange on a baking dish.
- In a medium skillet, heat butter over low heat; add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add onion and cook until softened. Add mushrooms and cook for another 2 minutes until just soft.
- In a large bowl, combine tuna, garlic, onion, mushrooms, breadcrumbs and cheese.
