Roma tomato, parmesan cheese & garlic chive spread on toasted ciabatta bread

Yesterday, I wanted to mix things up from the usual so instead of hitting a standard grocery, I went shopping at a small Italian Market in Little Italy. Most items are either made fresh at the restaurant next door or bought at the local farmers market. I picked up freshly baked ciabatta bread, roma tomatoes, parmesan cheese and a pre-made garlic chive spread... all the ingredients for an amaaaazing sandwich. Yes, I cheated with the pre-made stuff, but I found a recipe for fresh garlic and chive spread here

Prep: 5 minutes | Cook: 3 minutes | Yield: 1 serving

2 slices ciabatta bread
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 roma tomato, sliced
2 tablespoons garlic chive spread
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit. Slice ciabatta bread and roma tomatoes. Cover both slices with shredded parmesan cheese and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 3 minutes or until cheese is melted. Spread the garlic and chive spread onto one slice of the ciabatta bread. Top with tomatoes and the other slice of bread and... enjoy!
