Pesto tomato & cheese Bruschetta!

When it comes to the popular cuisines I think Italian does score at the top.You go to any place in the world and you will definitely find a pizza(though it may vary a lot in terms of the taste)Every region adds its own flavour and colour to it.
Coming to today's recipe Bruschetta is an Italian starter where you can play with different toppings depending upon your taste and it turns out to be great party appetizer with drinks.
I have a love for Pesto so much so that I keep a bottle full of pesto always in my fridge.You can add it to your  pasta,sandwiches ..and its healthy too..with the goodness of almonds and basil.
You can check my pesto sandwich  recipe


1 Baguette/Submarine Loaf
1 tomato
1/2 cup of crumbled paneer
2-3 tbsp of pesto (I used homemade)
2-3 tsp of extra virgin olive oil
Salt & Pepper to taste
Oregano to sprinkle

For pesto 

1 cup basil leaves
1/4 cup roasted almonds
3-4 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup of olive oil
Salt and  to taste


For pesto take all the ingredients and grind it .The top layer should be covered with olive oil to be stored in  fridge.
Slice baguettes and toast it.Chop the tomatoes finely and add salt and pepper.Drizzle some olive oil and oregano.
Mix salt and pepper to the crumbled paneer. You can even use mozerella cheese ..I have used paneer for a healthier option.
Take the toasted slices.Apply pesto sauce.Top it with tomatoes and crumbled paneer.Serve it immediately.

Add it in your party menu and your friends will just love it !!
Till we meet next happy cooking !!
