Mozzarella Tomato BruschettaPosted: September 13, 2012
I love bruschetta. I would have to say it is one of my favorite appetizers to make and serve. Bruschetta also makes perfect for a light lunch, and when you toss in a salad you have yourself a pretty satisfying lunch!
I was feeling a bit adventurous and decided to try making bruschetta a different way! Still the same ol’ classic ingredients… lots of fresh diced roma tomatoes!!
But this time around, I added some cheese on top and sprinkled it with fresh minced garlic and crushed red pepper flakes!
And after a few short minutes in the oven, a cheesy, delicious, concoction was born! Hehe :)
It’s like eating pizza without the sauce! I loved this! It was crunchy and absolutely satisfying! I paired it with my favorite salad of the moment (insalata caprese with proscuitto and arugula) :)
What’s your favorite way to make bruschetta?
I hope you’ are having a wondering Thursday afternoon! It’s so close to Friday!!! xoxo, kat
