Tomato Time

That's right folks! The tomatoes are starting to come in! I have been getting large ones from my CSA for the past few weeks and now the cherry tomatoes in my garden are ripening like crazy! So last night I tried an new recipe and it was GOOD! Of course the husband turned his nose up at first - he fears the unknown - only to proclaim it's deliciousness after the meal was done. MEN! LOL! My step daughter said I had to make this every time she came over for dinner. LOL! So here it is: Balsamic roasted tomatoes with spinach, prosciutto and mozzarella!

Balsamic Roasted Tomatoes with Spinach, Prosciutto and Mozzarella

 2-3 ripe summer tomatoes, sliced into thick rounds
Balsamic vinegar

Salt and pepper
garlic powder
Italian seasoning
Frozen or fresh spinach, chopped (squeezed dry if frozen)
2-3 thin slices of prosciutto
Fresh mozzarella, sliced

Pre heat oven to 400 F

Marinate tomato slices in the balsamic vinegar for at least 30 minutes
Lay tomato slices in a single layer on a foil lined baking sheet
Pour vinegar marinade over tomatoes
roast for 20 minutes
Remove from oven and season with salt, pepper, garlic powder and Italian seasoning
Top with prosciutto, spinach and mozzarella
Return to oven and roast another 5-10 minutes or until cheese is fully melter and starts to brown (You can use broiler to brown cheese as well)
