I found this recipe in an old Woman's Day magazine. I can't try it yet because the tomato selection is less than desirable right now, but I plan to try it once the tomatoes are looking good again! ZWT 3: U.S. Regional (tomatoes)

This is a great tomato recipe. I really enjoyed the spices with the tomatoes and leeks. I did use mozzerella, as it is what I had on hand, but that is the only adjusting I did with this recipe. It was fragrant and very pretty. I served it for lunch on Sunday out on the patio.
