Total TimePrep/Total Time: 20 min.
One reviewer who gave this recipe a high rating actually revamped the entire thing. Its success is highly dependent on the jarred bruschetta one uses, and where's the pesto? Adding feta and tomato to a processed jar of bruschetta is just garnishing an already finished product. Its a quick and easy "cheat" in my opinion.
does the bread get soggy from the pesto since it is not toasted first?
I made some slight changes and alterations to the recipe with more of an Italian flare. I used mozzarella instead of feta, and I added minced garlic and fresh basil on top with a drizzle of EVOO(extra virgin olive oil) on each bread slice. My Italian family love garlic and fresh basil on everything. Even alittle extra when it comes to some recipes.
I made this recipe for a family get-to-gether as an appetizer. It was definitely a big hit and the plate got empty quick. Next time I make it for the family I will definitely double the recipe. It is so easy to make, so it is not a problem. I would recommend it for any kind of large party or quick app for company.
My basil crop is out of control this year; was looking for some different recipes. I will definitely make this this weekend for hubby (along with yet another batch of pesto!).
I made my own Pesto
I made this for a family get-together, and it got RAVE reviews. We love olive tapenade, so I used that in place of pesto, and I used more feta. Wonder, bright flavors, and a colorful spot on the table! You get a great return on little effort!
I have had brushetta several times. My husband and I did not care for this recipe.
These are so good! This will be a keeper. The only trick is to not eat the whole plate by your self.
