Mozzarella Tomato Tartlets Recipe

Mozzarella Tomato Tartlets Recipe

Convenient frozen phyllo shells add to this impressive appetizer's easy preparation. Although I make them year-round, they're especially tasty with garden-fresh tomatoes.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-1/2 cups seeded chopped tomatoes
  • 3/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • Pepper to taste
  • 24 frozen miniature phyllo tart shells
  • 6 pitted ripe olives, quartered
  • Grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • 1. In a small skillet, saute garlic in oil for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes; cook until liquid has evaporated. Remove from the heat; stir in the mozzarella cheese, basil and pepper.
  • 2. Spoon 1 teaspoonful into each tart shell. Top each with an olive piece; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 450° for 5-8 minutes or until bubbly. Yield: 2 dozen.
