Warm Goat Cheese Appetizer

This appetizer highlights the warm goat cheese layer that supports the pepper and fennel topping.  Perfect make ahead appetizer that you bake ten minutes prior to serving.  Perfect accompaniment for an outdoor party with a marvelous glass of wine.  That is my type of entertaining!
