Ricotta, Basil, Tomato Tea Sandwiches

These are a little late coming as the tea lunch date was close to 2 weeks ago, but sometimes it takes a bit, and these are worth it.

Ingredients:
Bread – I used Arnold’s Whole Wheat
Ricotta
Fresh Basil
Garlic Cloves
Tomatoes
Olive Oil
Salt/Pepper

Directions:
Marinade slices of tomatoes in olive oil, salt/pepper mixture overnight.
Mince garlic and some basil (leave some for the topping) and mix with ricotta.  Store overnight.
Cut your bread into hearts with a heart cookie cutter.
Add some ricotta on top.
Add either a fresh basil leaf or a marinated tomato on top.
Enjoy!

You want to marinade your tomatoes overnight.  Just a little tablespoon of olive oil goes a long way.

Right before your tea date, get your bread ready.  You will basically be able to do one heart per piece of bread.
