  Ripe tomatoes 4 (Firm)
  Whipping cream 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Grated provolone cheese/Mozzarella 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Grated parmesan 1 Tablespoon
  Vegetables 2 Cup (32 tbs) (Green Peas, Sweet Corn, Sliced Zucchini, Diced Peppers, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Etc.)
  Minced garlic 1 Teaspoon
  Butter 1 Tablespoon
  Chives 1 Teaspoon (For Garnish)

Dip the 4 large tomatoes in boiling water and after 30-35 seconds transfer them in iced water to cool down and stop the cooking. Peel the tomatoes and remove the seeds, leaving the tomato cup-shaped. Heat the butter in a medium frying pan and sauté the vegetables with the garlic until soft. Add the cream and reduce slightly. Thicken with the grated cheese and season to taste. Place the tomato cups in appetizer plates and pour over it the creamy vegetable filling. Garnish the stuffed tomato with chives and chopped parsley, or fresh thyme.

Looks great!!  Could you give us a variation with bell peppers as well as maintaining the cup shape with tomatoes might be difficult if they are not firm enough... Bell peppers will be able to hold their shape a lot better. Please recommend some interesting filling for that. Thanks...
