Ingredients:
2 large tomatoes, thinly sliced
12 (9 x 14 – inch) sheets frozen phyllo dough, thawed
1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat Havarti or Muenster cheese
1/3 cup light mayonnaise
2 tablespoons prepared pesto
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Place the tomato slices on sheets of double-lined paper towels. Cover the tomatoes with more paper towels and blot gently. Let stand 5 minutes.

Cover the sheets of phyllo with plastic wrap to keep them from drying out. Lay one sheet of phyllo across a 10-inch tart pan with a removable bottom and lightly spray with cooking spray. Repeat layering, alternating angles, with the remaining phyllo spraying each sheet lightly with cooking spray. Roll the edges in to make a rimmed edge.

Arrange the tomatoes on the phyllo, overlapping them slightly. Combine the cheese, mayonnaise, and pesto in a medium bowl until blended.  Spread the mixture evenly over the tomatoes.Bake until edges of the phyllo are golden and the topping is browned and bubbly, about 30 minutes. Sprinkle with basil.

Paula, I love watching you and your family. I miss seeing your show, I watched you everyday. My son lives in Charleston S.C. He took me to the Lady & Sons to eat. Oh my goodness! People are always telling me that I look just like the cooking lady Paula Deen. I always tell them that you are my hero. May God Bless You Mary Ann

Add a few spoonfuls of parmesan cheese to the flour and cornmeal breading and it kicks the tomatoes up another notch. Bev

I just bought Paula's Peach Salad Dressing and wondered if anyone has a good recipe that they use it in?

Congrats Bobby. Loved the family picture miss you Paula on TV will be watching online. Jack is getting big. Looks like his mom but Matt aka moose has your face. Your eyes cheeks hair even falls to his face like yours except to the left. Good luck on your next venture. You give us other 60+ yr women strength to move on. Keep up the good work.
