    This recipe ended up tasting really good. I couldn't find fresh basil leaves or sun died tomatoes at the store so I used dried basil leaves and extra grape tomatoes. It still turned out tasty. The mozzarella was delicious.

    This was delicious, had a lot of flavor and my husband who is not a chicken lover, loved it, also made it with Alfredo sauce on top. Loved it
