Pomodori Ciliegini Tartine

What happens when you have some leftover cherry tomatoes? Make a tartine outta them! I got this idea after I made my cherry tomatoes grilled pizza. I didn't use burrata for this toast. But rather, I used a combination of 2 cheeses; fresh mozzarella and homemade ricotta. Once you make your own ricotta, you will never go back to those store bought ones. I can't imagine that I made this on March 2018 and I feel like it really need a revamp. What do you think? In the meantime, let's get started with the recipe.
