Baked Caprese Salad
Serves 4

  1. Preheat broiler in high. Move the top rack to the highest position in the oven.

  3. Lay the fresh basil on the tomato.
  4. Top with cheese. (I used shredded.)

My wife told me not to take pictures of this because the baking sheet is not spotless. I told her that cookware that get used will not be spotless. (Sort of like a cookbook that doesn't have drips, spatters, stains and spills on the pages obviously doesn't contain any good recipes.)
