2 large baking potatoes
2 teaspoons olive oil or cooking oil
2 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1/4 teaspoon dried basil, crushed

 At serving time, cut baking potatoes into quarters.  Scoop out the insides
(reserve for another use), leaving 1/2 inch thick shells.  Lightly brush both
sides of potato skins with olive oil.  Place, cut side up, on a large baking sheet.

combine the chopped tomatoes, basil, and garlic powder.  Spoon some of the tomato
mixture into each potato quarter.  Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.  Bake for 2 to 3
more minutes until heated through.
