In a bowl, mix the diced cherry tomatoes with the tomato sauce, diced sun-dried tomatoes, chopped garlic and chopped basil. Season with salt and pepper.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the table cream and mascarpone to obtain a thick, creamy mixture. Crumble the feta cheese with a fork and add to the mixture. Mix gently with a spatula. Season with salt and pepper.

To make the croutons, toast the slices of sandwich bread and cut into small pieces. Assemble the dishes in small Masson jars or in a clear glass of your choice, alternating in the following order: toasted sliced bread, creamy cheese mixture, tomatoes, until all ingredients are used up.

Chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
