Roasted Peppers, Fresh Mozzarella, Fresh Basil, & Fresh Tomatoes…..mmmmmm
Super delicious and obviously beautiful appetizer or meal. Looks way more difficult than it appears. If you can slice a tomato then you can do this!
My mother (a.k.a Nonna) would make this along with the million courses served at our amazing holiday dinners. I am sure if you want to add something else to it you could….possibly even marinara sauce. It’s hearty enough to be a small meal. Eat with friends or share with your special someone. I hope you enjoy Nonna’s Tower of Love.
