Nonna’s Tower of Love

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.
