I was totally impressed with the lightness and ease of these! Makes for a great appetizer for so many reasons! Easy to make, low in calories and totally yummy! You can easily adjust the recipe to use a different cheese that you may have on hand or simply just use grated parm. You can also omit the tomato if you don’t happen to have any on hand. Make it work for you!
