Tomatoes and basil are summertime staples. And string cheese, well, we've ALWAYS got that on hand! This grilly-good creation will rock your socks off...
1 stick light string cheese
2 tbsp. chopped fresh basil
1 large tomato
Optional seasonings: salt, black pepper, garlic powder
Break string cheese into thirds and place in a blender or food processor -- blend at high speed until shredded. (Or pull into shreds and roughly chop.) Transfer to a small bowl, and mix with basil.
Cut tomato in half horizontally. Carefully scoop out and discard the inside of each tomato half, leaving a hollow shell intact.
Bring a grill pan sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat.
If you like, sprinkle tomato halves with optional seasonings. Place tomato halves on the grill pan with the cut sides down. Cook until slightly softened, about 2 minutes.
Flip tomato halves. Divide cheese-basil mixture between tomato halves. Cover (any lid will do!) and cook for 2 more minutes, or until tomato has softened and cheese is warm. Enjoy!
