Roasted red peppers, fresh mozzarella and basil

Russ and I decided to get dinner in the North end, the Italian section of the city of Boston, this Wednesday.

I love the feel of the North end.  It’s reminds me of the European cities I have been fortunate enough to visit.

We went to a cute little restaurant called, Carmen Trattoria.  We ordered a few small plate appetizers including a red pepper, mozzarella and basil plate.  YUM!

So, I decided to try to make this little appetizer at home.

Start with fresh basil, fresh mozzarella and some roasted peppers.

Slice up the peppers into bite size strips, cut the mozzarella into bite size pieces and garnish with a generous amount of fresh basil.

I love fresh basil, do you?

Add a splash of red wine vinegar and garlic-infused olive oil.   It’s that easy.

Hope you try this tasty little dish.
