Zucchini Tomato Bites

I made this for the first time this year, and immediately LOVED it!
I am always looking for new ways to use up all of the items in my garden and this hit the spot.
And of course they were magnificently tasty.
Zucchini Tomato Bites
Idea from Confessions of a Bake-a-holic

5 small zucchini or summer squash
1 pint grape tomatoes
1 c. grated cheddar cheese
1/4 c. grated parmesan cheese
fresh basil leaves
ground black pepper

Cut squash into 1/2" slices.
Use a small spoon or melon baller to scoop out the insides, forming a cup (do not go all the way through).

Fill each cup with cheddar cheese.
Top the cheese with a basil leaf.

For large sqash rings place a whole cherry tomato, half for the smaller ones.
Sprinkle with parmesan.

Bake at 400 for 5-7 minutes, until cheese melts.
Serve immediately.
