      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]
