Wonderfull recipe! Only change I would nmake is the addition of some cayenne pepper or tabasco sauce. I like the use of whole tomato in this recipe instead of a jarred sauce! I will play with different types of cheese in the future for varioty. Wonderfull dish! Thanks! Edit 5/5/09: Made this using Recipe #233811 for the have to try this!!! Takes it to a new level!

Yummy! I couldn't find my pine nuts so used sliced almonds. Great appetizer! Made for Photo Tag.

A truly yummy light meal, which we thoroughly enjoyed with salads. Loved all the ingredients in this so I was bound to love this recipe. My only additions were a clove of minced garlic and 1/2 teaspoon of dried thyme. I still used the fresh basil leaves. I used regular mozzarella, grated and the mushroom stalks I added to my bag of ingredients (kept in the freezer) for next time I make my Recipe #135453. Thank you for sharing this delightful recipe, Jess. The blend of flavours was superb, and we loved the inclusion of the pinenuts. Made for PRMR.
