Cut a thin slice of the top of each tomato and discard; remove core. Carefully scoop out an reserve pulp, leaving a 1/2 inch shell. Invert tomatoes onto paper towels to drain. Chop reserved pulp. In a skillet, combine the beef, rice, parsley, basil, salt, pepper and tomato pulp; heat through. Remove from the heat; stir in cheeses. Spoon into tomato shells. Place stuffed side up in a greased shallow baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 35 minutes or until heated through.
