Using a small spoon, scoop out centers of each tomato half. Place tomato halves in a medium shallow baking dish. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add flour. Cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes. Stir in milk. Cook, stirring frequently, until mixture thickens, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in macaroni, crabmeat, cheddar, cayenne pepper, and salt. Spoon crabmeat mixture evenly into prepared tomato halves. Sprinkle tops evenly with bread crumbs. Bake until tomatoes are tender and tops are golden, about 25 minutes.
Note: I have used shrimp or tuna in place of crab.
