      Cut french bread across the loaf or at a small angle, making your pieces and inch thick or even thicker.
    2. 2
      With a brush, lightly paint one side and the slice edges with olive oil.
    3. 3
      Spread a thin layer of Bonnie's Pesto on the slices. (or thick if you like).
    4. 4
      Arrange slices of tomato in the top of the slice to cover.
    5. 5
      Lightly salt and pepper.
    6. 6
      Either broil or use a toaster oven to quickly toast the tomato slices. The tomato will not be "cooked" but simply heated up a little.

      When they are almost done, remove and sprinkle to cover with the two cheeses mixed together. Return to toaster until cheese is melted.
    8. 8
      This is an excellent appetizer or side dish with anything italian.

      How fresh, and tasty. I loved all of the flavors which complimented each other. I thought the feta cheese was delightful. A light supper of this brushetta type recipe, paired with a nice white wine, made a lovely meal. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
