So romantic and elgant;) This also makes a great first course with some crusty Italian bread and red wine or champagne.

This was a huge hit at a dinner party last night. I did modify this slightly for personal taste--I added 2-3 TBSP of fresh minced basil, diced the mozzarella, and served it with slices of baguette as a sort of fruit bruschetta. Wonderfully mellow flavor!

Fanciful combination and we both enjoyed it immensely as a final course. I made it well ahead and that didn't seem to hurt a thing.
