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.

  • ¼ cup basil leaves
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2-3 slices rustic or wholegrain bread

Recipe Notes

Skip the bread if you like - the cheese and tomatoes are still fantastic on their own!
