      I love this appetizer. It is really good and easy. I love fresh mozzarella so I knew it would be a hit! My family and guests enjoyed this as well! I will be making it again. Thanks for sharing!

      This was very easy to make and a wonderful presentation! I reduced the recipe by half, and used a fresh mozzarella ball, cut into four pieces. The taste was wonderful and I'm sure my friends will be impressed when I serve it to them! This was served as an entree (with some lovely focaccia), but I could definitely see serving it as an appy, before an entree. Thanks for sharing a wonderful recipe, I'mPat!
