Bruschetta with Tomato and Basil

Last night for dinner, I turned a tomato, french bread, olive oil, mozzarella, and basil pesto into a delicious plate full of Italian goodness! Although it is normally thought of as an appetizer, we find that after two slices we are stuffed! With just a few ingredients you can have a delicious meal, that is pretty good for you too. Here's my recipe for one of my favorite quick meals :)

Bruschetta with Tomato and Basil
Fresh tomato, diced
Italian bread, sliced
Basil pesto
mozzarella cheese
olive oil or butter
First, mix a tablespoon of basil pesto in with either 4T of melted butter or olive oil. Spread over the french bread slices. Toast in toaster oven until golden brown. Top with slices of mozzarella cheese (slices work best, but all I had was shredded) and diced tomatoes. Toast again until cheese is melted and tomatoes are hot.
You can also serve it with cold tomatoes on top (that's how I like it).

And of course, tomatoes!

  2. I think that's my favorite part, it's simple and delicious. Plus it's my husband's favorite!
