Nutritional values

Hard cheese is generally a good source of calcium, which strengthens bones and teeth. The cheese made from sheep's milk used here contains more linoleic acid than cow's milk cheese; this essential fatty acid is essential in helping the body burn fat.

Feel free to toast the bread slides or roast them in a hot pan without fat. If you'd like an extra portion of vitamin C, minerals and secondary plant substances, sprinkle the tomatoes with fresh chopped parsley before serving.
