  • 8 oz whipped cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated Pecorino Romano cheese
  • 1/4 cup homemade pesto sauce or store bought
  • 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.
  • Cut off the tops of the tomatoes.
  • Run your knife around the inside edge of the tomato, then scoop out the pulp; discard.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, Pecorino Romano cheese, and pesto sauce.
  • Cut the corner off of a heavy duty plastic baggie and insert an icing tip. Fill the bag with the cream cheese mixture.
  • Pipe the cream cheese mixture into each tomato.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve.
