 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
   30       ea           Sun-dried tomatoes
    1       tb           Olive oil
    3       ts           Garlic, finely minced
      1/8   ts           Red pepper flakes
      1/4   ts           Oregano
                         Salt & pepper
 
   Ensure that the tomatoes are not overly salty.  Refresh them in warm
   water to cover for about 10 minutes.  Soak them just long enough to
   soften them, but be careful that they do not become soggy.  Drain &
   pat dry.
   Warm the olive oil in a small saute pan over very low heat.  Add the
   garlic, red pepper flakes & oregano & warm for 5 to 8 minutes.  Be
   careful not to let the garlic burn.  Season with salt & pepper to
   taste.
   Make the “sandwiches” by laying one tomato face down, drizzling a bit
   of the herb-infused olive oil on it & covering with a second sun-dried
   tomato.  Serve at room temperature.
