Verrine: tomatoes, basil, ricotta and parmesan

We were invited to a friend’s house for watching a movie outside on the terrace and a barbecue. So I thought that I had to bring something and why not some “verrine” (small glasses), fresh and light!

I brought a few other things of course but that will be published later.
