Mozzarella Tomato Tartlets

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.

    I made these today, wanted to see if they would be a good Thanksgiving appetizer...they are sooo yummy! I doubled the amount of garlic and added a little salt with the other seasonings. I will definately be serving these on turkey day!
