Amanda's Recipe would be dinner for me. Wonderful summer meal to help deal with the heat. My version is more of an appetiser I use for summer parties. I grow four very large basil plants and cherry tomatoes so the ingredients are at hand, especially for August and September. I use fat free mozzarella for half of the appetizers, that is my separate version to accommodate healthy heart Bob. Although pecorino is made from sheep's milk and is very good for you. I haven't won him over on this because he says it tastes too good to be healthy. Dr. Oz claims it helps you live longer. I will have to do more research.

My ingredients are totally guess work

Small loaves of garlic bread (Stop & Slop has 3 loafs in a bag)
fresh garlic
cherry tomatoes or Capri
whole basil leaves
extra virgin olive oil
cheese, your preference, mozzarella, fat free mozzarella, Pecorino Romano, Parmesan

Cut one inch slices of bread, arrange on sheet pan, sprinkle a little extra virgin olive oil on each piece
Broil until lightly toasted
Remove from oven and rub with a piece of garlic, yes each piece !!
Add a slice of tomato, salt and fresh ground pepper, top with some of your favorite grated cheese
Broil again until slightly browned
Remove from oven and top with a piece of basil and a dab of extra virgin olive oil

These appetizers disappear. People politely wait to share the last pieces.
