1 orange bell pepper

1 ripe tomato, quartered

2 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced thinly 

4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Lay 4 basil leaves in each half, then 2 tomato quarters in each half, seed side up. Scatter over the sliced garlic. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
