Made these to snack on with wine last night and they were gone in what seemed like seconds!
Make and share this Bruschetta With Pesto, Mozzarella and Sun-Dried Tomatoes recipe from Food.com.
- 1 French baguette, cut into thin slices
- 1⁄4 cup olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves, quartered
- 6 ounces mozzarella cheese, sliced very thin
- 4 -6 sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil)
- 3 ounces sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil)
- 2 garlic cloves
- 15 big basil leaves
- 1⁄3 cup olive oil
- 1⁄3 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
- 1 cup basil leaves
- 1⁄4 cup pine nuts (or blanched almonds)
- 3 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan cheese
- 1⁄4 cup oil (about)
- Place the olive oil and the garlic in small bowl and let sit for at least 1/2 an hour; preheat the broiler; spread the bread slices on a baking sheet and then brush both sides with the olive oil; broil until golden on both sides (this will only take a couple of minutes).
- Place the tomatoes in a cup and cover with boiling water; after about 5 minutes, remove, pat dry and cut into long thin strips.
- Spread cooled brushetta with pesto of your choosing, a slice of mozzarella and a strip of sun-dried tomato.
- To make red pesto: Place all ingredients except oil in food processor; process adding oil gradually until it forms a paste.
- To make basil pesto: Place all ingredients except oil in food processor; process adding oil gradually until it forms a paste.
This turned out really well, my boyfriend and I ate the entire baguette for dinner! I will be making this again, but will cut down the oil by almost half - the bruschetta was dripping in olive oil using the 1/4 cup and had to let it rest on paper towels to get rid of some of the extra grease.
This is an intense, flavors-bursting-in-your-mouth starter! I've made this 3 times since first trying it. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT4
Really enjoyed these & probably could have eaten half of them myself! I half the amount of red pesto & half of the basil pesto, 'cause I wanted to try both, & it all was GREAT! My small group devoured these in no time, so it's definitely a keeper! Thanks! [Made & reviewed when I snuck over the border into Italy during the World Tour #4]
