This was wonderful! I made it tonight with leftovers of this pesto recipe: http://www.food.com/recipe/fresh-basil-pesto-272133. I skipped the green onions and just went with the pesto, tomatoes, and cheese. I also brushed the outsides of the tomatoes with olive oil and sprinkled on some garlic salt and fresh ground black pepper. They were so pretty that I just had to take pictures. Easy to make, excellent flavor - we'll definitely make these again. Thanks for a great recipe, Nif!
