how do you make warm tomato/basil sauce?

Since this recipe was adapted from Barilla, the tomato basil sauce is one of Barilla's flavors of jarred sauce. If you would like a recipe to make your own sauce, here is a link to the pasta sauces from Mr. Food; Enjoy!

Do you broil brush and broil both sides of the bread....or just one side and then put the cheese on the other side and broil?

Tried these for a book club meeting I hosted & everyone loved how fresh and tasty they were! I was happy they were easy to pull together & looked fancy :)
