Saw this recipe and decided to try it even though the were only two reviews (although both FIVE stars) and I am so GLAD I DID... it is AWESOME!!! This is a KEEPER!!! AMAZING FLAVOR and AROMA!!! SUPER easy! At first I thought 2 TBSP fresh Rosemary sounded like a lot but it did not overpower the recipe as I thought it might. I made this to give as gifts for a change of pace over all the usual sweets given this time of year. It has a GREAT presentation in the jar and looks quite pretty and festive. We tried it on some crackers and zapped it in the micro for 20-30 seconds to melt and its like a mini pizza. It would be VERY GOOD on sliced bagette bread under the broiler...add some bacon bits or something and you have a WONDERFUL appetizer that I don't think will disappoint your friends and family. Will be making some more VERY SOON as I only made 2 batches and decided I need to make more for gifts to share. If your thinking about this recipe DON'T HESITATE. I am sure you won't be sorry you did. ENJOY!!!
Oh boy this is good. I made it with sundried tomatoes and can't wait to try with roasted peppers. I like the idea of having a jar full in the fridge for many uses. I love it just plain have tried it on salad. Also on toasted baguette slices. With the baguette I used some of the oil and brushed on the slices under the broiler for a few minutes then topped with the cheese and under the broiler again until the cheese was melted. Very good!! I think next time I make this I will double the oil so I have lots for the baguette. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
Wow this was wonderful!! I used a homemade Italian seasoning off the zaar but can't remember which one. I also used Oven-Dried Tomatoes and some green peppers that I had roasted and froze from the end of garden last year. (Drained as best I could) I also made my cubes pretty small. Thanks for sharing..it's a keeper!
