Simple and Flavorful Spinach Stuffed Tomatoes

These little lovelies are vegetarian and healthy. They make a wonderful side dish to accompany almost any meal or own their own as lunch. I used beefsteak tomatoes as that was what was available however I think they would be even better if made with an Italian plum style tomato. Enjoy!
