Serves 12


  1. Preheat your oven to 200°C

  2. Slice the tops off the tomatoes leaving the stalks intact for presentation if desired.

  3. Also slice a thin sliver off the bottom of each tomato so in sits flat in a baking dish and doesn't roll over.

  4. Carefully scoop out the seeds and centre core and discard.

  5. Spoon a little pesto into the base of each tomato and place a meatball on top.

  6. Add a spoonful more pesto and return the tomato lid.
