I thought this was pretty good. I cut the recipe in half, an 8 x 8 baking dish, and baked for the full amount of time. I used sourdough bread and fresh basil, which I added to the top after baking. I would use more tomato slices and more basil next time. Made for Herb/Spice of the Month. Thanks for posting!
