1 Tablespoon(T)  balsamic vinegar
1 Tablespoon(T)  olive oil
4   plum tomatoes, halved

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Grease a shallow ovenproof dish. Place the ricotta and the Parmesan cheeses in a bowl and beat in the egg yolks until the mixture is smooth. Season to taste. In a clean bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff. Using a metal spoon, fold the egg whites into the cheese mixture. Spoon the mixture into the prepared dish and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until slightly risen, golden, and firm to the touch. Allow to cool. Place the tomatoes cut side up on a baking tray. Mix the olive oil and balsamic vinegar together and drizzle over the tomatoes. Season and bake for 20 minutes, or until the tomatoes are softened and slightly charred. Slice the baked cheese into quarters and serve with the tomatoes.
