Ann's notes: This is a delicious, though unusual color (burnt orange)
appetizer. I used the not-oil-packed tomatoes and soaked them in hot
water first. I then added 1 T. olive oil instead of the 1 T. reserved
tomato-oil. I also cut these into 28 pieces and they were just right
for pick-up appetizers. I found the baking time specified to be too
short. Next time, I would increase the temperature to 375 for the
filled cake to get it done in 20-25 minutes.

Lycopene super foods
(includes watermelon, red bell peppers & sweet gourd)
The nutrient lypcopene is a non-synthetic compound and part of the same family of phytochemicals as carotene. It is the reason for the vivid red color of a good number of foods.
Intrestingly, unlike many other nutrients, lycopene is not damaged if it is cooked, but is observably increased in efficacy by being cooked.
Its key theraputic value is that it acts as an antioxidant and seems to be of use in the battle to lower the probabilty of developing cancer.
