I served a mission in Italy & ate this nearly everyday. As a Home Ec. teacher, this was usually a favorite recipe among my 8th graders. It is super cheap and super easy and only uses a small amount of olive oil and low fat mozarella. You could even use a whole wheat baguette, if you could find one that is. Enjoy! I love it!

2 large tomato, chopped
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 tablespoon Italian seasoning (or just basil)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 baguette or loaf french bread, cut into 1 inch slices
1 cup mozzarella cheese, diced

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, combine tomato, olive oil, garlic, Italian seasoning, and cheese. Place bread on a baking sheet, and top with tomato mixture. Bake in preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until bottom of bread is browned. You can also broil them for about 3 minutes until golden, but if you broil keep a very close eye because they can burn so fast. Serve.
