Tasty Pesto Bruschetta with tomatoes

Easy Pesto Bruschetta

Bruschetta is one of our favorite appetizers. Bruschetta is easy to make and it’s always delicious, so since I had a batch of homemade pesto, I decided to add a fun twist on a classic.  This is a great appetizer to serve with an Italian meal or you can eat it just by itself, it’s actually what I had for lunch yesterday 😉

How to make easy Pesto Bruschetta

To make Pesto Bruschetta you need:

1 Baguette
Some olive oil
Pesto – I used homemade pesto
Diced tomatoes, you can use canned but I prefer fresh personally
Parmesan Cheese

To make Pesto Bruschetta you simply:

Slice the bread then toast it in the oven.
Top each slice with pesto, add tomatoes and a little Parmesan cheese
Now you can toss it change in the oven to warm the tomatoes, but you don’t have to, it’s a personal preference.

How to make Pesto Bruschetta

My husband doesn’t like warm tomatoes, in fact one of my closest friends doesn’t either, so when I make this easy appetizer I usually don’t toss it back in the oven.  If you want your tomatoes a tad warm and that Parmesan cheese melted, put the bruschetta back in the oven for a few minutes at 350 degrees or on broiler for just a few, and watch it so it doesn’t burn!
