This Italian-inspired dish is filled with protein and calcium from the mozzarella, while the tomatos and basil add valuable vitamins and minerals like potassium and vitamin A.

As olive oil plays a big role in flavoring this dish, ensure you're using the highest quality possible, preferably extra virgin.
