I have not made this yet, but I am dying to try it with the last of my tomatoes. This is a Paula Deen recipe so it has to be good, right? Hubby says yuk! every time I mention it, so I guess I'll have to make it for lunch and share it with my neighbors!

Weekend Cooking @ Beth Fish Reads is going on now! Stop over and see what's cooking!


  1. I just pinned some Paula Deen crockpot recipes. I should add this one too, my husband and sons would love it.

  2. I don't think it sounds yukky at all. In fact, I can't wait to hear how it turns out.

  3. Simplistic and mouth watering dish, I will have to try this before our tomato season is over.

  4. Love the idea of this. Have a great week!

  5. tomatoes..cheese...basil. how bad could it be?

  6. I second caite... sounds like the base ingredients would make for delicious food! Why not?

  7. this sounds so tasty. tomatoes and basil and then a pie crust to set it all off. wowo. Leave out the cheese, or so yummy.

  8. I made this sometime in the last year. I used a recipe from another site but the ingredients were very similar. I loved it, my husband and son were not so fond of it.

  9. I still have an abundance of tomatoes to use, and this is a good idea!

  10. What a great recipe to use up those delicious summer tomatoes. It looks delicious, I'd have to use supermarket tomatoes, I didn't grow a thing this year :(

  11. Our tomatoes from the store (northern Rockies) are coming in pretty flavor-less already, but this recipe is one to remember next year.

  12. Our tomato plants are continuing to produce - hundreds and hundreds of green tomatoes on the vine - so as long as the frost holds off, we'll have tomatos. And I'm out of ideas for what to do with them! So this looks like a delicious recipe to try. You can never go wrong with Paula Dean.
