Baked Parmesan Tomatoes

I am sure you are starting to see lots of fresh tomatoes in your area.  The tomatoes in my garden are still green, but the farmer's markets are loaded with them!  I am thinking they come from a little further
south than me.  An earlier spring for them.
In any case, I love to use what I find in the garden or farmer's market right away.
So today, I thought I would just keep it simple with Baked Parmesan Tomatoes.

This is one of those a little bit of this and a little bit of that recipes.  Basically, you will need: 
 2-3 large beefsteak type tomatoes, fresh oregano, salt, fresh ground pepper, 
shredded Parmesan cheese and olive oil.

Slice each tomato about 1/2 to 3/4 inches thick.  Lay them flat on a cookie sheet.  Season with salt, pepper and fresh oregano.  Top each slice with cheese and a little sprinkle of olive oil.
Bake in a 350 degree oven just until cheese melts and becomes bubbly.  Sprinkle with a little more fresh oregano and serve.

Each slice tastes like pizza minus all the bread...AWESOME!
