All I can say is, "Yum!"
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Place the tomato halves side by side with bottom sides down in an 8 x 8 inch baking dish. Evenly sprinkle with the garlic and basil; then evenly drizzle with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
Bake uncovered until tomatoes have softened and are sizzling in the pan with the edges slightly charred, about 30 to 40 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan and serve.

Wonderful as an appetizer, side dish or loaded onto toasted bagels. Yum!
Can't wait to get some tomatoes on my plants outside so I can make this!
Cut a 1 inch pieces from the stem end of the tomatoes. Carefully scoop out the pulp. Melt butter in skillet; saute mushrooms and onion 5 minutes.
Blend crumbs, 3 Tbsp. oil, garlic, paste and cheese. Stuff tomatoes and place in pan. Add 2 Tbsp. oil. Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees F for 15 minutes or longer until done.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with foil. Place the tomatoes on the sheet, cut side up. Drizzle with 1 Tbsp. of the oil and season with salt and pepper.

My ex daughter-in-law used to fix a dish she just called baked tomatoes. I asked her for the recipe, but she said it was her secret. She did tell me it was fresh tomatoes and four kinds of cheese. That's all I know.
Can you give us some more information? Were they whole stuffed tomatoes, or sliced and layered, or just chopped and mixed with all the cheeses?
I think she cut the tomatoes in half or quarters and then layered the cheeses on top and added salt, pepper and whatever else on top of that. It was baked and the juice from the tomatoes mixed with the cheeses so it was very moist. She may have mixed an egg with the cheeses too. I don't think she added bread crumbs or cracker crumbs, but that would be OK.
Do you recall which cookbooks she had on the shelf? This might be a clue.
PS It might have been sprinkled with msg.
I suppose since she's your *ex* daughter-in-law, you don't get to eat the tomato dish anymore. Did you ever try duplicating it using your ideas you listed in your second post? I'd really be curious if you were able to replicate it and how you did it. It sounds like an interesting dish.
It sounds like tomatoes au gratin. I'm almost certain I have a recipe home (I'm reading this remotely) and I'll try to post it over the weekend.
Try this- thick slice tomatoes or quarter them, arrange in a glass or ceramic baking dish, drizzle with olive oil, cover with slices of mozzarella and provolone. Crumble ricotta and FRESH parmesan on that. Add salt and pepper to taste and bake until cheese is bubbly. Serve with fresh basil leaves.
I have friends who make Tomato Pies. Google Tomato Pies and you'll find lots of recipes. Perhaps it will be one of these.
