This is wonderful as a first course or as a light but filling choice for a luncheon. There's just something about melted cheese and tomatoes that's been the basis for many thousands upon thousands of recipes. It's great served on it's own oven-proof plate. It's also low carb! Now you don't have any excuse to try it! I like this with an asparagus spear or two, placed on top. This is enough for a crowd, but it scales down great.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Place a slice of mozzarella cheese on top of each tomato slice.
  3. Sprinkle the basil evenly on top of all of the cheese slices.
  4. Carefully wrap the prosciutto around each tomato-cheese bundle.
  5. Place the bundles, fold side down in several shallow baking dishes that can be used for serving, if desired. If you do not have a suitable dish for baking and serving, have salad plates set aside and serve the packages on individual plates as a first course.
  6. Sprinkle the packages with wine and dot each with butter.
  7. Bake for 5-10 minutes or until the cheese begins to melt. Garnish individual plates or serving dish with lettuce or parsley.
