TOMATO BASIL SQUARE


COOKBOOK: Mag Recipe


Not so long ago I made a similar dish which was a hit! This one was also a hit and it left an almost pizza-like aroma throughout the house. The difference in ingredients, I used pine nuts with the pesto and only oregano (no thyme), topped with parmesan cheese.


Totally delicious! Hope you enjoy!
