Warm Caprese Dish

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.
Sprinkle salt/pepper.

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.

So delicious.

Such an easy recipe to make any night of the week!
