Bruschetta




This is a great tasting bruschetta spread that is easy to make.
 
8 oz. whole milk ricotta
1 beefsteak tomato chopped
10 mint leaves chopped
1 clove garlic minced
Salt and Pepper to taste

1 loaf good crusty bread sliced, grilled with a brushing of olive oil. After grilled brush with a little fresh lemon juice.

Mix the first 5 ingredients and serve in a nice bowl on a platter with your grilled bread slices.

  5. Yum....I love bruschetta toppings! Great for company and those friday evenings when no one really wants a big meal but lots of choices for munching! This looks great! I agree with Betty....TV at the bank?!!! Wow...not in my little town....more like country music on the mp3 player strapped to the ears of the person next in line! :)

  6. wow - that's creative! having been raised in an Italian family, I can honestly say I have never seen a bruschetta that looks like that - it was always just tomatoes, olive oil, basil, salt and garlic. Pine nuts were kind of expensive but now more affordable. Sometimes we put cheese on top (like romano or parmesan). I never saw a creamy bruschetta like this before but then - it's like any other dish like this: lots of personal variations from the traditional version.

  7. I absolutely LOVE bruschetta, but have never seen it made with ricotta cheese. This looks interesting and very tasty! I'll have to try it sometime.
