“This recipe is simple and elegant, and of course delicious! I found this in the Martha Stewart magazine, had 1 bite and fell in love! The combination of balsamic and basil and tomatoes and mushroom and cheese is heaven on earth... Makes a great starter and is very light. This recipe is for one, just multiply ingredients by how many people you are serving.”
