Cheesy Pesto Stuffed Tomatoes are the perfect appetizer for your next get-together, made by stuffing cherry tomatoes with an extra cheesy pesto filling!
Every time I’m invited to a get-together or a party, the first thing I think to myself is, “Hmmmm…I wonder what kind of food they’re going to have.” For me, every social gathering is all about the food.
There’s really nothing worse than getting to a party and *gasp* there is no food at all. That’s definitely no way to host a good shindig, in my opinion. Parties should be about good company, good conversation, and good food!
Little nibbles like these tasty Pesto Stuffed Tomatoes are perfect for a casual gatherings like game day or a barbecue, but they’re elegant enough for a bridal shower or Mother’s Day brunch. The bonus is that they can be made ahead of time, so you don’t have to be worried about spending all of your time in the kitchen when you have guests over.
- 8 oz whipped cream cheese
- 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 tablespoons grated Pecorino Romano cheese

- 1 1/2 pints about 36 cherry tomatoes
- Cut a very thin slice off of the bottom of each tomato so that they will stand upright.
