Recipe by Mooseybear
This is a lovely appetizer from Taste of Home. The presentation is pretty and the preparation is so simple. I am not fond of Goat Cheese and so I used an herbed cream cheese instead.
- 6 medium tomatoes, halved
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons goat cheese
- 12 rosemary sprigs
