Quick and easy bruchetta. Take your favorite crostini . ( or make your own by toasting fresh bread brushed with olive oil and a little roasted garlic) Then spread a dollop of Trentasette Genovese pesto and then top with fresh mozzarella , next top with a slice/piece of fresh tomato.( If truly fresh tomatoes are not in season use our Sundown Foods oven roasted tomatoes- you will always want to keep these in your fridge) If you don't want to put all the effort into layering, mix the pesto , cheese and chopped tomato in a bowl to coat and then let your guests spoon on their crostini. The truffles put it over the top.
