First bruschetta I've made that had zucchini as an ingredient. Absolutely delicious.....a keeper! I will definitely be making this again. Like several other raters, I also used dried basil.

This is yummy! I use the crusty premade garlic toasts from the bakery. Always a big hit.

I think I'm addicted to this! I too did not have any fresh basil, nor did I have green onions, so I used 2 teaspoons dried basil and 1 teaspoon dried chopped onions.

Having quite a few zucchini on hand I tried this recipe. I did not have fresh basil, so I used the dried. Still delicious!
