Smothered Tomatoes

Ingredients:

1 large Vine-Ripe Tomato
4 oz fresh mozzarella
Olive Oil
Fresh chopped Basil-about 1 teaspoon
Salt and Pepper to taste
Garlic Powder to taste
Juice of 1/2 of a lemon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Slice tomatoes into 1/4″ rounds.  Thinly slice the mozzarella into small rounds.  Put parchment paper on a baking pan and drizzle a little olive oil on top of paper.  Place tomato rounds on the pan and top with mozzarella, a sprinkle of garlic, salt & pepper.  Drizzle olive oil on top of the cheese and place in oven.  Bake for 11 minutes.  Turn broiler on and broil for an additional 3-4 minutes until the cheese starts to bubble and brown.  Serve immediately with fresh chopped basil and a squeeze of lemon on top.  They were great as a side dish to our chicken.  I hope you try them and love them.  They are really simple and yummy.
