Tasty Tomatoes

Wisconsin tomatoes are in season and just like every other August, they are as delicious as always. Also got some fresh garlic, have the basil, have the olive oil… I can see tomato salad in our future. Now if we could just find some fresh mozzarella which is surprisingly hard to find in spite of being in the Dairy State. Lacking fresh mozzarella, the backup plan is to make Scalloped Tomatoes. Here is the recipe:

Serves: 6
