1. Cut the tomatoes in half crosswise. Gently squeeze out and discard seeds. Place the tomatoes cut side up on a broiler pan prepared with cooking spray.
2. Combine the garlic, oil, basil, and pepper in a small bowl. Brush evenly over the cut surfaces of the tomatoes. Broil on high on the top rack until soft (5 minutes).
3. While the tomatoes are broiling, combine the crumbs and cheese in a small bowl; sprinkle evenly over the tops of the hot tomatoes. Return to the broiler until the crumbs are browned (2 minutes).
