  1. I have made this and layered fresh basil leaves, grilled red bell pepper, and portabella, but I love the idea of marinating the veggies for 30 minutes first. I will be making this, this week, now that I see how delicious yours looks.

  2. 5 stars
    These sound amazing! What a great appetizer for summer entertaining!
