“This is a good way to use up some leftover Italian bread -- or any bread for that matter. Fresh mozzarella melted over vine ripe tomatoes and basil, then drizzled with extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Yummy! A nice glass of red wine and you're in heaven! Enjoy with a nice salad or a cup of soup; makes a lovely lunch or afternoon snack.”

Wonderful sandwich that's quick, easy and delicious! I used a loaf of Italian breaf. I toasted the bread in the broiler first, salted the tomatoes in order to get the water out of them and added a little cracked black pepper. I didn't bother putting this in the oven but enjoyed this with just the bread being toasted. I cut in into sections and wow - excellent without a ton of effort!

We have eating a version of this a long time. But first, toast bread and rub raw garlic on it while it is still warm. 1/2 Cheese goes on bread first, then tomato, rest of cheese, then basil. Yum!!!

Great sandwich. Fresh ingredients - use ripe pomodori - and you'd never know the bread was a leftover.
