There is something to be said for the simplicity and gourmet taste of fresh ingredients. I just stopped by the store and picked up these small tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and I was going to get some fresh basil but they were all out.  I started to panic a little, but hiccups happen in everyone’s lives.  I just used some basil from my spice cabinet.  While it isn’t quite as fancy as I had hoped the taste is out of this world.  Surprise your Valentine tomorrow with this great appetizer!
