Serves 4; Prep 15 minutes; Cook 40 minutes

Ingredients
5 ounces frozen garlic bread
8 plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise
¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
½ onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/3 pound frozen cooked bay shrimp, thawed and coarsely chopped
¼ cup grated asiago cheese

Directions
1.    Preheat the oven to 425*. Arrange the garlic bread on a baking sheet and bake until toasted; let cool.
2.    Meanwhile, scoop out the tomato flesh and seeds and coarsely chop; transfer to a small bowl. In a large bowl toss the tomato halves with 3 tablespoons olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Arrange cut side up on a foil-lined baking sheet, sprinkle with 1 tablespoon basil and bake for 3 minutes.
3.    Meanwhile, cut the garlic bread into cubes. Using a food processor, process into crumbles; transfer to a medium bowl.
4.    in a large skillet, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened; season with salt and pepper. Add the tomato flesh and cook until most of the liquid is absorbed, about 3 minutes. Add the shrimp and cook, stirring often, until heated through. Add to the garlic breadcrumbs and stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon basil.
5.    Preheat the broiler. Divide the shrimp mixture among the roasted tomato halves and top with the cheese. Roil until the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes.
