Bruschetta with Tomato and Basil
Fresh tomato, diced
Italian bread, sliced
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).
