Is tomato sauce and goat cheese healthy? Tonight my answer is going to be yes. Maybe I splurged and went off the diet just a little bit but this was my main meal and the baguette pieces are tiny. Did I mention that I ate a very healthy lunch!
A couple of weekends ago we went to a tapas place here in Houston that served this dish and I fell in love instantly. I also don’t like goat cheese or so I thought. It goes perfectly with a garlic and olive oil baguette that’s been heated in the oven. This is my creation of the tapas dish. ENJOY!
