    Cut each tomato into four slices; place in a greased shallow roasting pan. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon pepper and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Sprinkle remaining pepper and salt over roast; place over tomato slices. Spread remaining pesto over roast.

    Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 160°.
