Top-ranked recipe named "Smashed Peas and Mozzarella on Toast with Romano"
Traditionally made with fresh peas, I've found very little difference between the frozen alternative, and it's much easier to get a bag of frozen than to find shelled fresh. So I start by boiling some frozen peas in salted water for five minutes. Afterward, drain and pour the peas into a blender or food processor. Add the mascarpone, 4 tablespoons of olive oil, and salt and pepper, and blend to a rough paste. Set aside.
Cut your bread into square slices and lightly toast on a baking sheet in the oven under broil, then drizzle with some olive oil.
Spread the pea mixture on the bread, and tear up the mozzarella placing a couple bits on each piece. Sprinkle over the Romano cheese, and drizzle with a bit more olive oil. Serve immediately and get ready for the amazed compliments!
