CAPRESE: TOMATO AND MOZZARELLA WITH HERB PESTO

PREPARATION

For the pesto, peel and finely chop the garlic. Grate the parmesan finely. Roast the pine nuts in a pan briefly over medium heat. Pluck the herbs from the stalks and place them in a bowl together with the parmesan, pine nuts, olive oil and garlic and puree into a fine paste using a hand blender or mortar. Season with salt and pepper.

For the Caprese, wash the tomatoes, slice the big tomatoes, cut the cherry tomatoes in half and place them on a serving dish or plate. Pluck the mozzarella into small pieces and spread on the tomatoes. Pour the pesto on top and top with basil and pine nuts. Pour a little olive oil and freshly ground pepper over it and serve, e.g. with fresh baguette.
