Prepare the crumble by quickly kneading  butter,  Parmesan and the flour with the tips of your fingers; put in the fridge to rest. Meanwhile, wash the tomatoes, cut in half and season with 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, lime juice, salt and pepper, mix with chopped basil and leave to marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Crumble the crumble on a baking sheet and bake at 190 ° for about 10 minutes or until it is golden. Cut the mozzarella into cubes and keep aside. Cut the aromatic herbs and mix them with the crumble. Start to compose your glasses with a layer of marinated tomatoes, one of mozzarella, continue with the tomatoes and finish with the crumbled crumble. Serve immediately with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
