Pesto Spinach Quinoa Stuffed Tomatoes

Tomatoes are another one of my favorite summer produce picks. I swear they taste sweeter and juicier during the warmer summer months! My dad eats them like apples. I haven’t tried that yet but I do try to work them into many of our meals.

When I was at Sam’s Club last week shopping with my mom, I saw the most beautiful fresh tomatoes and just had to stock up– big time.

They were so ripe, juicy, and the perfect shape for making stuffed tomatoes!

Stuffed tomatoes are very similar to stuffed peppers (which we love), except I think stuffed tomatoes have a sweeter flavor and a more delicate consistency that we really enjoy.
