We've been making these nearly weekly since the May edition of Cooking Light and they are a huge hit! They look so impressive with guests - just beautiful, especially with the stems still on! I don't use sage and instead use extra green onion and stir the cilantro right into the cheese. We sprinkle paprika on top just for addded prettiness :)

Ok so I modified this slightly since I didn't have the fresh tomatoes or the herbs in house. And used marinated sun-dried tomatoes instead. And these were the bomb!
