pesto brushetta

My friend Marie recently brought these to an engagement party and they are perfect for a party: colorful on a plate, easy to put together and a definite crowd pleaser. I will admit that I was wondering if the ricotta would be flavorful enough, but I was quickly proved wrong – these were as flavorful as could be. And since she was kind enough to leave the left-over ingredients with me…I enjoyed these for a few nights after the party had ended…

Pesto Ricotta Brushetta

  • 1 baguette, thinly sliced and toasted under broiler
  • prepared pesto and sun-dried tomato pesto
  • ricotta cheese
  • sun-dried tomatoes, chopped

Layer the bread with the pesto or sun-dried tomato pesto (we had both varieties), ricotta cheese and a sprinkling of sun-dried tomatoes.

Pour yourself a glass of wine, make some snacks and enjoy your weekend!

    Wow, that looks amazing. I want THAT now, and a glass of wine, but it’s only 8:30 am. Will be sure making this tonight for our appetizer Friday night.
