Cherry tomatoes stuffed with Mascarpone

Production: 20 – Bites
Preparation: 15 Minutes
Cooking: 0 Minute

Our gardens and the market stalls are full of nice and juicy cherry tomatoes. We love them in salads, but they also make great small bites appetizer.

The basic recipe is simple and the main challenge is to have the patience to carefully scoop out the berries that are quite fragile.
Then just cover with nuts, basil or even a few pieces of Aleppo or Andaliman pepper.
The variations are limited only by our imagination.
