  Ripe tomatoes 6
  Salt To Taste
  Basil leaves 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Closely Packed)

  Pine nuts 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Grated parmesan cheese 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)

1. Peel the tomatoes, core them and cut a slight depression in the center for stuffing. Squeeze the tomatoes gently to remove most of the seeds. Turn them upside down on a small layer of salt to drain.
2. Meanwhile, combine the remaining ingredients in the container of an electric blender and blend on low or high speed until well-pureed. Or puree in a mortar and pestle.
3. Salt the tomatoes both inside and out and spoon equal portions of the basil mixture into the center of each. Chill and serve cold.
