  • 10 San Marzano Tomatoes halved
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1/2 - 1 cup Parmesan cheese shredded


  • Pre-heat grill to medium low.
  • Add tomatoes, sliced side down, onto grill. Cook for about 5-7 minutes until light grill marks begin to show.
  • Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a saute pan, add garlic, salt, onion powder, pepper, and rosemary. Cook for 3-5 minutes or until fragrant, stirring often ensuring that the garlic doesn't burn. Remove from heat and add to a small bowl and set aside.
  • Gently flip each tomato half and generously brush with garlic oil mixture and top with Parmesan cheese.
  • Close grill and finish cooking for another 7-10 minutes until cheese is fully melted.
  • Gently remove from grill and serve immediately.
