Appetizer: Roasted Garlic, Tomato, and Basil Squares

Instead of beginning a feeding frenzy with fatty, cholesterol-loaded foods, indulge in delicious heart-healthy cooking. This menu is so rich-tasting, no one but the cook will know it's good for your heart.

Start hungry guests off with this warm and filling appetizer. Using low-fat mozzarella and a variety of herbs, the topping has a savory creamy texture with scant artery-clogging saturated fat. The tomatoes contain the antioxidant lycopene, which may reduce the plaque that causes clogged arteries.
