Give me a tomato, piece of cheese and some bread -
I am one happy girl!
Thus - the inspiration for this simple dish - using garden fresh ingredients.
Perfect for a quick, easy dinner!
Slice some tomatoes (BIG or small) - and put on a baking sheet.
Drizzle some balsamic vinegar over the top.
(About 1-2 tablespoons.)
Slice some FRESH mozzarella.
(Make sure to PAT IT DRY with a paper towel.)
Layer the mozzarella...
Dice some fresh basil and garlic.
Sprinkle both on top.
(About 2-3 teaspoons of each.)
Drizzle about 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil over the top.
Then - you can TOP this off with either CROUTONS or crusty WHITE BREAD.
(I opted for the bread - because I didn't have any croutons.)
Drizzle more olive oil on top.
Pop in a 375 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.
Take it out... and (mouth waters)...
Warm, creamy - gooey...
The tomatoes just BURST in your mouth.
Such an easy recipe to make any night of the week!
