Italian bruschetta (pronounced “brusketta”) is a wonderful way to capture the flavors of ripe summer tomatoes, fresh garden basil, and garlic. We love the ease and deliciousness of this recipe when throwing in Le Grand’s 4-Nuts and Cheese Pesto. It tastes like we are in our favorite Italian restaurant, but we’re actually sprawled out in our living room.
- 1/2 baguette, sliced
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 3 to 4 whole garlic cloves, peeled
- 4 large tomatoes, diced
- 2 tablespoons Le Grand 4-Nuts & Cheese Pesto
Brush the olive oil onto one side of the slices of bread. Bake in a 400 degrees F oven until toasted. Remove from oven and rub with the whole garlic gloves. Blend the tomatoes and the Le Grand Pesto and dress each slice of bread with a generous portion of bruschetta.
Yield: approx 16 hors d’oeuvres.
