Mozzarella bites with pesto

Do you like mozzarella? Do you like also pesto? And how about both in the same recipe?

I got this idea from a Jamie Oliver's show some time ago. It's a very simple appetizer but also very tasty.

As you can clearly see the dish has only three ingredients: mozzarella, pesto and oil! That's it!
Isn't that awesome? You can serve a wonderful antipasto to your guests with very little effort.

In this recipe I used low fat mozzarella, but you can use also the normal one or even buffalo mozzarella for a more rich taste.

I realized only afterwards that I put a little bit too much pesto on the mozzarella bites, oh well :P

HINT: This dish works well also as snack, especially if you use handy small mozzarella balls.

Ingredients (serves 2):
  • 2 mozzarella (200 gr each)
  • green pesto
  • rapeseed oil or olive oil
  • pine nuts (optional)

Remove the mozzarella from the packages, shake them off the water and tear them into pieces by hand. No need to be precise :)
Place a teaspoon of pesto on top of each mozzarella bite and drizzle with oil. If you want, add also some pine nuts on top.
