Goat cheese is made in a wide variety of styles, from soft fresh cheese to hard aged cheese. For this dish you should use a soft goat cheese. Goat cheese is high in protein (health benefits of goat cheese).
Tomatoes can be either from a can or bottle of tomato sauce, hacked tomatoes, or can be fresh. If you go with fresh ones, either blend them into a sauce or finely chopped them.
