This easy recipe is great as a side,but you can almost eat it as a main course if you want a lighter meal. It's popping with fresh flavors! It's best at the end of the summer when you have freshtomatoesandbasilfrom your garden,but tastes great any time of year.
- 1 loaf ciabatta bread,cut in half lengthwise
- 4 Tbsp.盐黄油
- 3 cloves garlic,minced
- 2 Tbsp.fresh parsley,chopped
- 2 tomatoes,sliced
- 2 C.fresh mozzarella cheese,shredded
- Fresh basil leaves
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl,soften butter in the microwave. Add minced garlic and parsley. Brush on the ciabatta loaf halves,spreading evenly. Bake for 15-20 minutes,or until golden brown. Remove from oven,top with the mozzarella cheese and tomato slices. Bake an additional 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven,then drizzle with the balsamic glaze (see below) and fresh basil leaves.
- 1/4 C.balsamic vinegar
- 1 Tbsp.honey
Heat in a small saucepan over medium heat,until simmering. Reduce by half,until the glaze coats the back of a spoon. I doubled the recipe so I'd have extra to use for other things (it's also great on roasted Brussels sprouts).
