Excellent! I used the broiler instead of the oven to both roast the peppers and toast the bread - Watch the bread closely if using the broiler - it's browned in under a minute. I didn't bother to drizzle extra olive oil on the bruschetta and the only time I used salt and black pepper was in the olive oil/bell pepper mixture. Note: The recipe states to use 2 cloves garlic, peeled, but the garlic cloves should be cut in half, with the cut sides rubbed onto the bread. Also, the toasted bread, (I used a French Baguette), should be lightly toasted - more browned on the edges, lighter in the middle. Use a good, soft goat cheese! This is delicious!!!
