SEX. Got your attention? Good. Ferrari. Wine. The leaning tower of Pisa. The Colosseum. See where we’re going with this? Yep, it’s Italy week.

And what better way to kick it all off than one of the all time greats – tomato and mozzarella with bread. This classic dish has a real summer feel to it – perfect for a warm, relaxing evening.

Basil (and a glass of red of course) is the key to making this meal a real success – but what to do if you end up with more basil leaves than you can shake a tomato at? Why, make pesto of course!

It’s a super simple 5 minute way to use up those spare basil leaves, and means you’ve got another meal ready to go. Just click the link to see how it’s made.

  1. Love this! I make some version of it all the time when I come home from an 11 hour work day. Awesome blog concept 🙂

    1. Yees, definitely a good quick dinner that doesnt involve much thinking. I’d add a salad after such a long work day I guess.
      Glad to hear you like the blog idea! Thanks 😀

        This recipe told me ALMOST all I need to know… I’m guessing I’ll preheat the oven to 350? How thick do I slice the tomatoes and cheese? Wish they would spend more time on the recipe and less on the elaborate introduction ‍♀️ that’s always the worst part of internet recipes! I’m not here to read a life story I just want to make dinner!

        1. Hi Mysel, thanks for the feedback. You’re right, the recipe was a bit vague. It’s now updated. Sorry to hear you didn’t like our life stories 😉
