I’ve been busy in the kitchen this week! This Bruschetta is a great light weeknight meal paired with a salad! You could also multiply the recipe and serve it as an appetizer at parties! I like this recipe especially, because the bread is crisp and not soggy and the garlic and balsamic give the tomato mixture a kick!

Serving Size: 2


8 baguette slices

1 large tomato

¼ cup olive oil

1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

2 cloves garlic

8 large basil

½ cup pesto


salt and pepper to taste


Brush the baguette slices with olive oil and bake them in the oven at 350 degrees until golden.

Chop the tomato, chiffonade the basil, and slice the garlic and place it in a bowl.

Toss the tomato mixture with olive oil, balsamic and salt and pepper to taste.

Spread a tablespoon pesto on each baguette slice.

Top each slice with a spoonful of tomato mixture.

Garnish with freshly grated Parmesan.
