Baked Tomatoes with Garlic Scape Pesto, Mozzarella & Mushrooms | Low Carb
Updated: Feb 1
These Baked Tomatoes with Garlic Scape Pesto, Mozzarella & Mushrooms are so easy to make, it hardly qualifies as a recipe. The uniqueness of these baked tomatoes is the Garlic Sacpe Pesto. Garlic scapes are the curled flower from the top of a garlic plant and are filled with flavor. The scapes taste just like garlic, and great for making pesto. I was fortunate enough to receive a homemade Garlic Scape Pesto in my weekly winter CSA (community supported agriculture) share from Main Street Farms. It is absolutely delicious.
When making these baked tomatoes, you can make your own pesto or substitute with your favorite grocery store pesto.
