Tomato Basil Sandwich

Here's a pretty Afternoon Tea Sandwich to enjoy:
Tomato Basil Sandwich
1/2 lb. (2 sticks) butter, softened
2 Tbsp. tomato paste
1 cup fresh basil, finely cut, plus additional basil for top of sandwich
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 c. Romano cheese, plus additional cheese for sprinkling on top
Pumpernickel bread
Fresh plum tomatoes, thinly sliced (spread out on paper towel to drain)

Combine butter, tomato paste, basil, salt, garlic, and Romano cheese until well blended.  Using a 2" round cookie cutter, cut Pumpernickel bread.  Spread filling on bread.  Top with tomato slice.  Sprinkle with cheese and basil.  Serve proudly!
