Tomato and Mozzarella Pesto Bites

  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, loosely packed
  • 4 ounces mozzarella, small ball shape or bite size pieces
  • 1 teaspoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons pesto
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

For each tomato, fold a large basil leaf around the tomato. Spear on a 4-inch-long skewer or toothpick. Add a mozzarella ball to the toothpick. Repeat until finished with all ingredients.

Mix the oil with the pesto to form a thin sauce, and drizzle over the skewers. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
