  • 3/4 cup (84 grams) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper

Recipe Notes:

Refrigerator Storage: These are best enjoyed fresh, but if you have leftovers, store the prepared tomatoes in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Reheat for 30-60 seconds in the microwave or in the oven at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) until warmed throughout.
