I meant to add shaved Parmesan cheese to the platter and scatter fresh basil over all, but I was so excited about how cute these were that I started snapping these photos and forgot.  Then, Charlie and I sat down and ate it all up!  While I was doing the dishes, I remembered.  So, I’m adding those to the recipe as “optional” because my original vision was to include them.
