Indulge In {Baked Caprese Bread}

I am a big believer in easy entertaining. It should be simple, fun, and delicious. A party should look you spent hours and hours throwing it together to make a big impact without actually taking all of that time out of your busy schedule. One of my favorite ways to do this is by planning a meal based on simply impressive hearty hors d'oeuvres. In most situations, they take less time to make, but everybody enjoys them more because they can nosh their way through the evening. My latest favorite to throw together is a bake caprese bread. It's simple, fast, and utterly delicious. Here's the recipe...

:: Ingredients ::
1 Loaf Fresh French Bread
4 Cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1 Jar Basil Pesto
2 Vine Ripe Tomatoes, sliced

:: Directions ::
(1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees and cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil.
(2) Slice bread in half horizontally and place on cookie sheet.
(3) Spread 1/4 of the jar of pesto on each half of bread.
