Italian Toast {Recipe}

You know those light bulb moments that happen every once in a while that make you question who you are? 'Cuz seriously, you can't be THAT smart! I lied. You totally can. I can't though.

Actually, I did once...and that was when I came up with Italian Toast. Can I say that this has been a meal for us, and not just a snack? Not only is it healthy but it has cheese, people. And if you need to know anything about me in this lifetime, is that I am addicted to cheese. Which also means my definition of healthy may contradict the actual definition of that word.

My husband would probably throw in a joke how I'm super "cheesy" right in here {if you've been around for longer than 3 seconds, you've probably caught that.}  I am but not compared to this amazing mozzarella topped wheat bread with tomato and pesto.

Here's what you will need:
- Olive oil, garlic powder & basil seasoning
- 1 small jar of basil pesto {or homemade}
- 1-2 cups chopped tomatoes
- 1-2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- 6 slices of whole wheat bread {or any kind really. Tastes great on ciriola!}

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Take your bread slices and place them on a baking pan sprayed with cooking spray. Drizzle a little olive oil over the slices, then dash on some garlic powder {doesn't take much.}
Spread the basil pesto on the slices and top with tomatoes. Sprinkle the cheese and some basil seasoning.
Bake for about 5-10 min, until the cheese is melted and the edges of the toast are light brown.
Cut into squares or strips and serve!

Man I love being creative in the kitchen.
