I have been so busy I haven’t had time to really cook anything too complicated. This week Earthfare had a coupon for fresh mozzarella, so decided to make a quick bruschetta the other evening. It was so quick, easy, and yummy I thought I would share the recipe with yall. And of course a mouth watering pic to go along!
• Dice 5 roma tomatoes and mix them in about a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. • Then mix in about 2 tablespoons of basil–I used a fresh basil paste that I keep in the fridge for quick recipes like this (Fresh basil will work too) • Also mix in about a table spoon of fresh minced garlic. Use more for stronger garlic taste. • Sir untill tomatoes, basil, and garlic are all mixed well. Sit aside tomato mixture. • Slice a fresh loaf of french bread (or baguette) and placed it on a baking sheet. • Cut small strips of fresh mozzarella and placed it on top of the bread slices. • Bake bread in 350° oven until mozzarella has melted. • After the cheese has melted remove from oven and transfer to serving plate. • Place a spoonful of the tomato mixture on top each slice of bread. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and enjoy!
