  1. Last time I made this it seemed sort of boring. This time I made it into a sort of paleo calzone, using sausage link chopped up and cooked almost completely then add mushrooms and saute until done. Turn off heat let cool some and add bell peppers coarsley chopped and just before stuffing tomato’s add fresh basil. Just a suggestion but made the recipe something extra.

  2. I eat dairy, so I added some sour cream and oregano to the sausage mixture. Topped it all with some mozarella and a couple strips of bacon :D Yum

  3. I made this tonight,and it tasted great.i did add some crushed red pepper flakes, sooo delicious!! Thanks for the recipe!

  4. Stellafey, I’m making this today also. I would add some italian seasoning to give it some flavor. And tonight, I think I’ll add some cayenne and cumin as well.

  5. LOVE this recipe! I used 1/2 lb of spicy ground Italian sausage and 1/2lb of sweet ground Italian. Added chopped garlic. I don’t like cilantro, so I used fresh basil and oregano instead. Delicious!

  6. what is a serving? If 2 people eat 2 tomatoes, how is there enough for lunch for 2? I liked the recipe. Another winner!!

  7. I have to agree that the basic recipe tasted boring. I added oregano and red chili flakes. Still I felt it needed something so I added a spice mix I had in the pantry (McCormick Grill mates fiery five pepper seasoning) it was Cayanne pepper roasted chili pepper black pepper ancho chili and chipotle flakes. It didn’t list any non-Paleo ingredients on the label so I thought it would be okay!

    Tasted much better! My husband who smothers almost everything in Sriracha sauce Said it was perfect

    If you have one, a grapefruit spoon is ideal for Scooping out the tomatoes
