Pesto Bruschetta

I honestly can say that this recipe is one that Mark and I eat on a regular basis. Not necessarily with pesto, but I will show the non-pesto alternative. This is a quick, healthy and delicious meal that you can prepare in under 15 minutes.

What you'll need - 

2-3 vine tomatoes (you can use regular hot house too, but vine are the best!)
1 small onion chopped
1 clove garlic minced
splash balsamic vinegar
splash extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp oregano
1 tbsp pesto and extra for bread if you like
or 1 tsp basil if you don't have any pesto 
4 pieces whole wheat bread or 4 pieces of sliced baguette
Parmesan or mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 375F.
Seed and chop tomatoes into small pieces.
Sprinkle salt on tomatoes and put in bowl.
Add in onion and garlic to tomatoes.
Add small splash balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
Stir in oregano and pesto or if you don't have pesto the dried basil.
If using regular bread toast first in regular toaster, if using baguette just place on baking sheet. 
Put heaping spoonfuls of the bruschetta mixture over the bread and spread out evenly.
Sprinkle with parmesan or mozzarella cheese.
Bake 5-7 minutes, until cheese is melted.

I really hope everyone enjoys this recipe as much as Mark and I do! 

Until next time,
