Pesto Bruschetta

I love coming home and preparing a fun little snack that is super easy to make and always a crowd pleaser. Making your own fresh appetizers is fun to do and seems to just taste better. All of these ingredients can be found at your local grocer or feel free to make your own pesto out of the basil found in your garden! I have a friend who has a huge basil plant and is always so generous to share. I like to make a couple varieties of bruschetta so feel free to mix and match and come up with your own favorite!

What you need:
baguette or similar bread
ripe Roma tomatoes (I always think they have the best flavor for dishes like this)
fresh mozzarella cheese
pesto (homemade or store bought)
fresh basil leaves
olive oil

1. Preheat oven broil
2. Slice your baguette into 1/2 inch slices and brush on olive oil, place in oven when ready until golden brown edges.
3. Slice tomatoes and mozzarella cheese
4. Top your golden delicious bread with pesto, tomato, cheese and basil in whatever fashion you would like.
