Stuffed tomatoes recipe with and without oven

Today I want to share with you one recipe that is perfect for the summer time, STUFFED TOMATOES WITH AND WITHOUT OVEN.

Those are not the usual tomatoes filled with tuna and rice but some tomatoes filled with the very mediterranean taste.
This is a very traditional apulian recip that brings me back the memories when my grandma used to make to me the “acquasale”, a poor plate, super good and easy to do.
This one was made above all from the fishermen and farmers and they used to eat them while they were at work.
Usually is make by putting the bread in the water and putting on the top salt, origan, oil and tomatoes. Generally they used to put also carosello and thiny onion, from Tropea or the one that comes from Margherita di Savoia that it is super sweet.
I made those tomatoes in the oven filled with this acquasale and i also made them without using the oven and in both way they are super good.
Here below the recipe
