Mozzarella, Pesto, and Tomato Bruschetta

We had lunch at a friend’s house this week and she served this for lunch. I knew my husband would LOVE this combination, so they were ready to go when he came home from work. Delicious!

Mozzarella, Pesto, and Tomato Bruschetta

1 baguette
2 cloves garlic, peeled and left whole
Fresh mozzarella, ½ inch slices
2 T pesto
1 medium beefsteak tomato, diced

Slice the baguette and place on a baking sheet. Preheat the broiler and toast the bread for 1-2 minutes until golden brown. Rub with the whole cloves of garlic. Place the slices of mozzarella on the bread. Broil again for 1-2 minutes until nicely melted. Spread small dollops of pesto on each slice and top with diced tomato.

Here is a basic pesto recipe.
